Strange KV7-V Problem

Hi,
I have just bought an ABit Kv7-V MoBo and it won't boot. At first I thought it was the PSU (it would click and whirr for a second then die) so I replaced the PSU with a new 550W model from Qtec. It now comes one and continues to Whirrr but that is it, the monitor doesn't switch from Stand-by mode to Active Mode (so no signal). This lead me to think it was the Graphics board not getting the required Voltage so I have replaced that with a new one that is AGP 8x (0.8v I think, but could be 1.6v which is still good with the MoBo). The only thing I can now think of is that the CPU is dead. I don't actually have any way of checking this as the only other Socket A CPU I have is my old Duron900.

Sys:
Abit Kv7-V
768MB 333MHz RAM
20GB HDD and 40GB HDD
CD+RW drive
DVD-ROM drive
550W PSU
Nvidia 128MB FX5200

Yep That is Plugged in.
I have now phoned the supplier and they have agreed to take it back. I found that other users of this board are having similar trouble so I am gonna get a different one.
Thanks you for your replies, could you recommend a board?

Cool. Thanks again for your time.
This forum actually gives me the buzz I felt when I started in Computers. Haven't felt it in a long while. I think I might stick around for a while.

Nope, gave up in the end. I only replaced the MoBo to start with cos I slipped with a screwdriver on the old one. Then I had to get the new PSU and the costs started stacking up. I just gave up.
