Whats wrong with my computer or gpu

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 .

    thats the problem.
  2. The problem is your PSU. You need to upgrade your PSU, your 8800GT consumes a lot of power.
  3. 250w is not enough you need a bigger power supply. Im surprised that 250w psu even had the 6-pin connector the 8800gt requires.
  4. Haha thanks guys .. ill upgrade . What wattage do you guys prefer
  5. Get a 400W from either of these brands. Corsair, Seasonic, Antec.
