Hey Jpetucci, sorry I'm a bit late with a reply, but I'll give it a go anyway.

The system failed a to POST (power on self test). The beeps are the mobo trying to tell you what it thinks is wrong. Look up the codes in the motherboard handbook.

That said, if everything else was working when you changed out the ram, you likely have a bad stick, maybe two. It's also possible the ram isn't getting enough voltage as the ballistix is spec'ed at 2.2 volts. (however, mine will boot at 1.84v). Try booting with one stick and see if it works. Then try the other.
