But for the most part it could be your ram. For the most part ram failures usually create beeps on a POST, If it's not doing that it might be your cpu then.

But I would check everything like I said, just to make sure your replacing the right part.
Unfortunately I don't know anyone who has a DDR3 compatible motherboard so I can't test my RAM.

I went ahead and ordered a new CPU. Hopefully it'll work, if not I'm going to bang my head on this desk.

Well its unfortunate you can't get it to boot at all to even run tests on the memory. Did you try removing one stick at a time and testing that?

If the cpu works and everything else is fine that's not too big of a deal but it sucks having to spend money when you don't want too.

Would bad memory stop the computer from booting?

It would, it would almost always beep. Though there has been a few times when I was fixing computers that it was the rams fault but no sounds were produced at all.

Try one stick at a time and see what happens.

I tried one stick at a time and it still won't boot.

Well it seems it is most likely your cpu. Your using the gtx460 as a main card and the gts450 as a phys-x card I assume?

I plan to use the GTX460 as the main and the 450 as the PhysX but right now I only have the 460 plugged in.
