It does sound like a possible video card problem. I would try disconnecting all the drives and just have the monitor connected to the video card and see if you get anything display as it boots. And listen for any beep codes. Also be sure you didn't bump the video card when you installed the Sata drive. I would take out the video card and reinstall it.
