Is it possible that I could safely test a GPU just to see if it turns on by using a PSU tester in the PSU's 24 pin, and connecting the PCIE cable to the graphics card? I just need to know if the GPU even turns on, so I don't waste my time trying to get it to work when my new mobo comes.

No.
Wait until you have all the relevant parts, build it, test it.
