How much construction did you do on that machine? I notice that the PSU is very much on the small side of things. Have you tried booting to BIOS with just the bare minimum components (CPU, 1 stick RAM, GPU...no HDD, optical drives, floppy, etc.)?

If that doesn't work, try removing one key component (CPU, GPU, RAM) at a time, and see if you can get any POST error beep codes.

If you can get beeps, they will tell you what's wrong. The meaning of the patterns should be listed in your mobo manual, but if not, there's a great FAQ on here that lists out the common beep patterns for each of the major BIOSes.

Beeps are error codes from the bios, if you know your bios you can get a chart to tell you what the series of beeps mean. Does it sound like it is booting? HD activity or just dead? of course the key here is, the other guy couldnt get it to work either.
