Firstly, your system won't post unless the CPU, video, RAM is installed anyway.
I suggest you try this :
Install the CPU with its heatsink & fan, one stick of RAM in slot 1, the video card, power supply, monitor, keyboard.
Locate the clear cmos jumper on the motherboard - this is the jumper marked JP1 in the bottom right corner of your motherboard.
Disconnect the psu ATX connector from the motherboard, place the clear cmos jumper over pins 2-3 for at least 10 seconds, then replace the jumper back over pins 1-2.
Make sure the system speaker is connected. Reconnect the PSU's 20pin ATX connector & fire up the system. (make sure the 4 pin CPU power connector is plugged in as well)
If you still don't get the screen to appear, try a different stick of memory. Also try reseating the video card.
Let me know if you hear any beeps etc

Is there any chance the cpu could have overheated at any time - has it been swapped between boards without the thermal compound being renewed, for example? Or have you had any overheating issues with it in the past?
