I would try the following.
1). Boot without the LAN card, Modem or soundcard. If that works then:
2). Install only the soundcard. If it works at this point it is not soundcard related.
3). Then try installing the LAN card and boot.
4). Finally install the modem and boot.

the beep code 1 long/3 short is a video card issue - either bad ram or card not found - if it boots without the sound card in then it probably isn't the ram - try what cyberfiber said and remove all the cards but the vid - then add them back one at a time starting with the sound card and see if it will boot
