Take 1 Stick of memory out then try it, if it still happens switch sticks. if it happens with both, use a differen't computer to donwload memtest 86, burn to disc and then boot off of it, run the test on the computer you building with both memory sticks in. Wait like 3-5 hours then see if there are any memory errors. that BSOD usally points to bad memory or overheating problems.

what is your cooling set up?

you don't need a DVD burner, you need a CD burner. ok if you can't do that. try doing what I said with the memory sticks, also try them in differen't slots and make sure they are seated correctly.

Well, refer to your motherboard manually, look in the trouble shooting section.

What kind of beeps?
2 long? 1 long?

The Mobo manual will tell you what the beeps mean.

But its most likly a RAM or Video card or Mobo error.
