RAM upgrade makes the PC not start


I recently bought a RAM upgrade to my PC and suddenly it doesnt want to power up. It lights on and shuts back down after like 5secs and never boots.

My setup:
Asus P6T Deluxe
Core i7 920
Gainward HD 4870x2
1x3 3GB 1066MHz RAM - went to 2x3 6GB 1333MHz
1000W PSU
Antec 1200

After i replaced it with the default RAM i had before, it started just fine. What may be wrong? I really want to upgrade that ram because i went from 32bit to 64bit and 3GB is kinda bottleneck.
