When you run in to a hardware problem, it is always best to find ways to run several tests. Never jump to conclusions. Luckily, someone gave you good advice. Had it not been for that, you would have wasted money on a new graphics card. Anyway, RAM modules are one of the cheapest and easiest things to replace in a computer. If you are going to replace the modules yourself, make sure that you get a replacement that is compatible with the motherboard.
Found the problem!! Someone told me to test the ram as the beep codes for my specific motherboard were different. So I removed the ram one by one and found the broken one and it worked!! Thanks for all your help though!

In simple terms, pc3200 is faster than pc2700. Generally, if your motherboard only supports pc2700, then inserting anything higher will just cause the motherboard to lower the speeds down to what it supports. However, some motherboards could have compatibility issues if you insert anything other than what it requests. I would be able to better guide you if you could provide your computer's model number.
Thanks! I looked on crucial.com for ram specific to my computer and it says use pc2700 but the same person who told me to check the ram says to use pc3200. Do you know the difference?

According to the manufactures specifications, the motherboard does support both PC3200 and PC2700. Just make sure that you get no more than 4 GB and that the DIMMs are 184-pin DIMM Sockets. Also, just wanted to say that there is not much of a difference in speed from the PC2700 to the PC3200. So if the price difference is large between the two, don't bother with the PC3200.
Umm i believe the model # is ASUS P4P800-VM (motherboard #)
