It's my first build and I'm having issues now. The computer powers up (everything seems to be working, fans, lights turn on) but it doesn't boot up and I don't hear any beeps. The monitor stays in standby mode. Could it be the graphics card? I also plug in the keyboard (not through usb but ps/2) and it doesn't seem to recognize it, seeing that the light doesn't come on.

The monitor is hooked up by Dynex dvi-d to hdmi cable.. dvi-d (monitor) to hdmi (graphics card). And the monitor worked fine when I hooked it up to the PS3 with the same cable. I couldn't hook it up to my other comp being that it doesn't have hdmi.

Is there anything I can do to figure out what the problem is?

It might ba a PSU problem

If I was you I would try these:

Disconnect everything but the essantial (Video card, One stick of ram, keyboard) and see if you can get it to boot or at least hear beeps.

Clear your CMOS settings

Try another PSU if you can:

Confirm you have plugged in all of the PSU cables to where they need to go - especially the CPU and graphics come to mind as common mistakes I see not being plugged in.
