Hi bennyc. There is no reason why you shouldn't get excellent results with this motherboard and processor. I have built 2 computers with the Syntax motherboard, and both are working fine. The beep pattern is telling you that there is a memory problem. If you look at the specifications on page 2 of your manual you will see that the motherboard supports PC1600 or PC2100 DDR memory, so I think that your PC2700 is the problem.
