A newbie, Power Mac G5 related question

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
So I was fortunate enough to run into a Power Mac G5 in the trash (well not in the trash but on the curb). The computer itself turns on and the fans go on. The light on the power button lights up, and there is a red light on the board that goes on. Unfortunately it was missing a video card and RAM. I was able to borrow a spare video card until I determine whether this monster works or not, but haven't had luck with the RAM. So I installed the video card (Radeon 9600 AGP). Assuming I still have no RAM and I turn it on, would anything be displayed on screen at all? I know that is a totally newbie-ish question to ask, but help would be appreciated.
