double checked all of that... could the mobo be fried? the fans and the rest of the system kick on

I thought you had switched out the mobo for a new one? Was the new one a used mobo?

Edit:

to make sure I suggest that you unhook all your components. Have your motherboard connected to the power supply and attach the video card. Thats it.

The computer should still boot and you should be able to get into the bios.

If its pci graphics card, and your mobo has an agp slot .. some boards are finicky and will only show video on agp slots.

double check if you have an agp slot.

Yeah, if it's a cheap board, I would not expect PCI video cards to work.

Pull the CMOS battery, wait 30 seconds, put it back in and try booting. Make sure you are using the highest PCI slot from the top. Also make sure the monitor is connected.
