What you got is a "no display" issue. As you are doing it the first time, several things can go wrong. Your motherboard came with an on board VGA and DVI ports. So first step is to remove the Graphics card and check the display with on board VGA. If it works, re insert the card in PCI-E slot and connect the extra power header. Now clear the CMOS by removing the battery for five minutes and recheck the display. If it still didn't works, the card might be faulty.
If you don't get display even in on board VGA, follow the steps.
1 ) Remove the entire components from cabinet. (wear a glove to avoid static electricity or touch the cabinet metal )
2 ) Double verify that CPU is inserted in the socket in the correct way. Refer the manual came with the board to know how to fit it correctly.
3 ) Insert only one RAM preferably in the first slot. Also connect the SMPS.
4 ) Now power on the board and test the display. If it works, insert remaining RAM modules and check.
5 )If everything is OK , connect the graphic card ant test the display.
