This is the first time I have built a machine with PCI Express. Now when everything is hooked up I get nothing. Here are the system specs.

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Processor (ClawHammer) Socket 939
Asus A8V-E SE Via K8T890 Athlon 64(FX)/Athlon 64 X2 Skt939 DDR ATX Motherboard w/Audio, Gigabit LAN, RAID/Serial ATA
2 x Corsair VS512MB400 512MB DDR400 PC3200 CAS2.5 Value Select Memory
ATI Radeon X1600 Pro PCI Express 512MB DDR3 Video Card
Western Digital Caviar SE 320GB Ultra ATA/100 7200RPM Hard Drive w/8MB Buffer
Shuttle CR40 16X Double Layer DVD±RW Drive
350 Watt power Supply

We have swapped out the motherboard and the video card both and get the same result. We tried hooking the second motherboard and video card on its own and still got no video. What are we overlooking?
