I got a new geforce 8800 gt i put it in the desktop .
When i turned it on , it was a loud beep noise . Like it was gonna catch fire or something .
Maybe it was just something with the bios .
I dont think so though..

I have a 250 w psu
With these components
Amd anthlon x2 5000+
320 gb hdd
Nvidia onboard graphics .

The problem is your PSU. You need to upgrade your PSU, your 8800GT consumes a lot of power.

250w is not enough you need a bigger power supply. Im surprised that 250w psu even had the 6-pin connector the 8800gt requires.
