Default Urgent Help needed on my gpu

Hi my pc already served me good for almost 2 years.. Back 2 weeks ago, ive been experiencing lock ups and crashes during games (wow and such) so i took measures to recover this(wiping the fan, shift my pc to an air-cond room etc etc).. but the prob still persists until it reached the max state, unable to display a thing and whenever i power on, a long beep follows up by 2 short ones (bios beeps proven something wrong with my gpu)so i assured it must be old enough already and should be replaced.. Yesterday i picked up a brand new msi 7600gs 256mb.. To my surprise, the 3 ****** beeps sound again.. Im now so confused and dont know what should i do.. Please help, thanks

Amd 3500+ venice 939
512 kingston x 2
Sapphire x800gt (faulty ??) and msi 7600gs (faulty too..??)
msi k8n neo4

the three beeps sound like a ram error, run your system with only one sick in, then take that stick out and put the other stick in,

why don't you run MEM68 and stress tests and check your temps to see if it gets too hot ?
