So I just finished putting my new rig together, X4 955 / 890gx mobo
I'm running into a slight problem which I believe may have to do with the video card. I put the video card on the pci slot 2, put the vga card provided by asus on pci slot 1 (as recommended) but I get a no-ending beeeeeeeeeppppppppp while the computer goes to the BIOS menu.
I took the video card off and plug the monitor on the default video on the mobo and it worked (except I didn't hear one beep as I read I was supposed to hear...)
So... Shall I install the OS update everything and only after installing the HD 5850? Or what advice can someone give me?

Did you plug in the two 6 pin plugs?
There's a 8 pin and and a 6 pin on the video card.
MY PSU (Artec eartwatts 650W) has a PCI express 8 pin cable which I connected to the card.
