I just built a new pc and it wont turn on! I have;

AMD Phenom II 940 Quad Core 3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H MOBO
G.Skill 1066 DDR2 Memory 2X2GB
PSU Rosewill DR-8500BTX 500W.

I installed everything, I have no Hard drive hooked up to it yet, I turn it on the fans start going but seem a little slow. The board has onboard graphics so I am plugged in via RGB nothing fancy. Monitor neverer does anything ever! It will not load to the BIOS or I cant see it maybe? I took the heatsink and fan off the CPU and turned it on the CPU is not getting hot at all its not doing anything and the system doesn't shut off, it should since i took the heatsink and fan out and unplugged it right?

Does this sound like a PSU, Motherboard, or Processor issue. Everything is brand new and I just dont know what to return first?
