1. Removed every PCI card leaving only the video card
2. Disconnected all drive cabling at the motherboard & removed power from the drives. (incl floppy, hard drive & optical drives)
3. Cleared the bios using the jumper (for approx 10 secs or more)
4. Disconnected all peripheral devices such as USB devices etc, leaving only the monitor & keyboard
Can you also tell me if your video card is agp & whether you have an integrated video card as well or instead of the off-board video?

I doubt it will fix itself and yes we do look into this deeper but it can be any number of components so every post about this problem can be different.
The easiest thing in your case would be to try a pci video card if you could get a hold of one, since the fans and drives spin up I think the cpu would be ok but the lack of beeps suggests the mobo it could be something in the AGP buss on the mobo, a pci card would be a temp fix but atleast tell you what it is.
I would also try removing the mobo from the case, I know you used standoffs but you should still try it.
Look the mobo over very carefully, look at the capacitors for signs of bulging or leaking, check the underside for scorch or burm marks.
