I split your post into a new topic. This helps avoid confusion, otherwise it can be difficult to determine which post a reply is directed towards.
When you installed your new video card, did you uninstall the video driver for your previous card? Did you install a new driver from the CD supplied with your new card?

1) When you have the ATI card installed, does the computer boot? (Do you get any beep codes, can you see the hard drive light blinking, hear fans, etc?) If it's not booting, your power supply may not be providing enough "juice" to boot the system with this new power hungry card.
2) One long beep, two short, while booting indicate a video adaptor failure. I suspect its not making good contact. While the power is OFF, try cleaning the video card contacts on your motherboard with a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. Also, inspect for any bent or broken contacts. Also, when installing the any video card, press firmly to ensure the card is fully seated.

Do you know the make and model of the computer and/or motherboard? Then we can tell for sure what these beeps indicate.
ok, well, i don;t know if it matters but it beeps once short, 1 long, then 2 short
