I just built a new computer with these specs:

MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum SLI mobo
AMD64 4000+
2GB OCZ Platinum
Antec Neopower 480W

I have a BFG 7800GT and a Evga 7800GT at the moment. The Evga card won't even boot up, it beeps five times and the screen stays black. The BFG card will boot and I can play games fine, but it still does 5 short high pitched beeps at start up.

Whenever I'm on the computer, the same 5 high pitched beeps will happen at totally random times, freaking me out.

Why do I have 2 cards of different brands? Well I was waiting for my 7800GT from the Evga Step-up program to come and it was Friday so I didn't want to wait any longer. I went to Best Buy and pick up a BFG 7800GT to hold me over till the Evga one comes. When I got the Evga one, I'd return the BFG one. Thing is when I got home from Best Buy UPS had just delievered the EVGA one...so ya.

Are they both bad cards? Or is something wrong with my computer? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
