what's your PSU wattage?

 

is the MoBo powering up?

did you connect the PSU pins to the GPU?

did you connect the screen to the new GPU?

Be sure that dedicated graphics is set to auto in bios. This allows the mobo to choose what the output video should go through

Make that NO ram

Is no ram of the card working or no ram of the computer working. If you have no ram working on the computer thats the problem not the gpu.

Make sure the computer will post (turn on and output to the display) without the graphics card. If so, make sure the power connectors are plugged into the card and that the card is properly installed. If it still does not work, then the card is probably defective and you need to contact the seller and get a replacement.

might of bumped the ram while replacing the graphics card or the ram chose a bad time to go bad or something. Remove all but 1 stick and try to boot up. if that doesnt work change which ram stick is in. if at any point it boots with one stick in then you know that you have some bad ram.

You started experiencing RAM issues after the BIOS update, yes?

 

This is most likely because you've corrupted the GBE region, happens with most older Asus mobos if you haven't updated the BIOS firmware twice (yes, ASUS does specify this in bold within the readme file)
