  • CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
  • Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz 2 x 256KB L2 Cache 3MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80623G620
  • Kingston ValueRAM 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model KVR1333D3N9K2/4G

When I hook everything up, the fan will spin for a few seconds and then stop. no lights, nothing else.

Sounds like you may have a standoff under the motherboard in the wrong place or not screwed down. This is the most typical mistake a newbie builder will make.
Take the motherboard back off and make sure if there is a standoff there is a corresponding hole in the motherboard for a screw to be tightened down to.
