Soo does that mean that the card itself consumes 550 Watt?

You should go into the user control panel and enter in your system specs. That way everyone can see your specs in your sig, so you won't have to constantly list your specs.

If it isnt starting up and making a loud beep then the graphics card isnt getting enough power and its a display error beep.

Well it was more like a whistle, but anyway everything I've learned so far is pointing at that I should get a new PSU so that's what I'm going to do

Are all of the proper connections made to the card including any 6-pin or 8-pin connectors that need to be plugged in? Also make sure that if you get a new power supply that it comes with those connectors.

For example, here is a very nice power supply but it comes with no 8-pin PCI-E connector.

I'm like completely new to all these terms, so what exactly is a 6-pin and a 8-pin? Because on top of my graph card there're like two plugs. One with 6 holes and one with 8 holes - suppose that's it?

If you don't plug those in you will get a whining or whistling noise because the card wants more power.
