Also, after searching more through these forums, I found that i might need to reseat the memory. I had originally had them both (2gb each) in the black slots, but changed to the blue slots this time while reseating. After turning it on, i thought there would be no beeps, but then two sets of two beeps each occurred, but then ceased.
Is the problem resolved? looking at the beep code list from: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-010249.htm
says now that it is a parity error.
Is there still a problem?
I've tried one memory module at a time and it still isnt working. I sill recieve two sets of two beeps (and then it stays on and keeps running, seemingly fine)
maybe im missing power to the motherboard? Maybe its because i havent put a graphics card in yet? maybe its simple i just cant see it yet because i have no monitor plugged in? maybe the power isnt plugged in right around the motherboard? help!

With two beeps that means parity error. Yes you are right, that since you have not installed the video card, you get the error beep.
The beep should dissappear once you have the card installed. I have verified this unless you have another issue.
Re: RAM, once you will be able to go to your bios, manually set the ram setting to 1333 Mhz and the latency to 7-7-7-20 and the voltage to 1.6v.
Re: From the product guide, the specific error beep (two beep) is a video error.
