Here's what I'd recommend trying:
1. Remove and reseat the video card and make sure the pcie locking tab is in.
2. Double-check that the 2x6 pin power connectors to the video card are properly inserted/seated.
3. Clear CMOS
4. Install the video card to another PCIE slot to see if that works.

Ok I reset the cmos tried to move it, it still doesnt work but now the lights on the motherboard STAY on the whole time (and by lights i mean the power button reset button and 2 digits on motherboard itself), before they turned off after a short time... is this agood thing? it gets stuck on d6 though.. Sad still no screen

RE: First time build no screen
Do you have another video card that you can test in the PC or another system that you can try the video card in? That would allow you to figure out which one is defective.

Ok I tried it with an older video card that seemed to fit one of the slots.... solid a3 this time and it works! does this mean the problem is the graphics card?

RE: First time build no screen
All right, return the motherboard for a new one then. It would appear to be defective unfortunately, which happens due to damage during shipping usually.

Glad to hear that the motherboard works then. Yes, you should return the video card for a new one, it's most likely defective.
