The lights on the motherboard and video card indicate that they are getting power.
Chances are that your are not getting past the "POST" (power on self test) and that is why you have no video.

You mentioned that this system sat for several months before replace the PSU, so the first thing I would recommend is to reset (remove and reinstall) all you daughter cards. You already did the video card, but do the rest like the RAM, Sound card and any other cards that plug into the motherboard.

Make sure you do this with the power cord disconnected from the outlet.
