    So the power cord and graphics card came today, I popped them both in and.... I get 3 beeps... From what I've read this means bad banks... Well this happened with all of the RAM in, 2x 1GB and 2x 256MB. When only the 1GB sticks are present, I get 3 beeps, but with the 256MB sticks, I get 2 beeps. Any idea what's wrong?? I think it may have to do with the fact that I'm using PC2-3200 RAM

    Just to make sure-are you pairing the RAM correctly?

    Try the two 256mb sticks in the two innermost slots. Give both the sticks and the slots a blast with air, and make sure the sticks are fully seated.

    Yeah I'm pairing correctly, I just found out that the 1GB sticks are both PC2-5300, so that could help.
