Graphics card not compatible with my motherboard?

My graphics card causes my pc to make a loud, continuous beep every time I turn it on, and runs normally when I remove the card. I noticed that it supports PCI Express 2.1 while my motherboard only has 2.0 ports, could that be the problem?

Video Card: ASUS ATI Radeon HD 5850 1 GB 256-bit GDDR5

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

  1. The 2.0 or 2.1 is just a standard indicating transfer speeds per lane, it should work anyway. Do you get a blue screen or error?
  2. No, my computer starts up normally, just with a loud, ear piercing beep.
  3. faulty graphics card or incorrect installation. have you connected all the power connectors to the gfx card. what PSU do you have?
  4. could be overheating issues, or something unrelated to the GPU. you can download something like Sandra or other programs to find out temperatures.

    The PSU is powerful enough. Did you plug in both 6-pin power connections?

    If you did, then you could mean the video card is faulty or the PCI-e port on your mobo is faulty. Do you have a friend that can lend you a PCI-e video card for testing?
