Edit:
Hey everyone, i just bought a new gtx 480 and tried to go about installing it myself. I uninstalled my old drivers and installed the newest ones for the 480 from the nvidia website. However when i put the 480 in my computer and try booting, my mobo just emits three consecutive beeps repeatedly and doesn't start up. My computer is quite old, I have a 630i motherboard and ddr2, is there a system requirement i'm missing? im not quite sure what's wrong.

Your power supply might not be up to the task. What are its specs?

We will need some more specs, like PSU. You might need to flash the BIOS too.

I have a Corsair 1000w HX. I'll see if I can find something about flashing the bios, thanks for the tip
