Earlier in the day at 4pm I went to a friends to check out the PC. It worked fine, I then brought it home removed GFx + Ram from the new one but then decided to put them back in ((long story you wont need to know)).
I then come to turn this new PC on at 8pm and now I am just getting a black screen from my monitor and -- 1 One second Beep and 1 Three second beep.

Remove the RAM and install it again and restart.....it will work if still not work then change remove RAM again and start your machine..it will give beep sound...if it will not give beep sound then understand your machine's mother board is faulty......
Ohh good question. Ram can really help the game load faster and minimize hard drive swapping. BUT if you are having low framerates that is mostly a video card issue. The 6200 is a pretty old card. In short I do not think it will help your frame rate to up your ram. Replacing your video card with a better one will be what you need to do for that.
I have an 8600 GT that is pretty cost effective now days. It seems to be able to run graphics intensive games like CoH and others with relative ease. Yet it is a couple years old now I believe. If you can id do both the ram and the video card.
When you turn it on do you get a POST or a Startup screen at all? If so do you know how to enter the BIOS and check if it has a graphics card or on-board GFX? If it's on-board you will have to get it checked by a pro as it could be the chipset or the GFX chip that has failed. The system boards are not cheap even to buy on eBay so it might not be economically viable to fix. If you're confident enough the only thing you can do is a trouble shooting session. First ground yourself by touching a radiator pipe or something that is earthed and without wrenching take out the RAM(push out the spring clips), clean the connector strips and blow out the slots. Replace and try to boot(its amazing how RAM can play havock with a system). If you have no joy with that you will need to take the video card out(if it has one) and do the same with that, be careful though, some GFX cards use the CPU heatsink as the cooling device and you will need new TIM(thermal interface material) for both. If still no joy take out the GFX card and revert to on-board graphics through the Bios if possible(most don't have on-board GFX). If you still can't get it to work then then that's about all you can do yourself without help or spending money. You either need a friend that doesn't mind messing with his laptop so you can try your card in it or take it to a repair shop for testing.
Did you discharge yourself of static electricity before touching the memory? Apparently static electricity can destroy memory. Also make sure the memory is correctly seated in the slot. Also check to see that everything inside the computer is properly connected. I have gone inside computers and have accidentally nudged something loose and as a result the unit would not work. Try a completely different memory stick than the ones you have now. These things are what I would investigate first.
Make sure the BIOS is set to boot to your gfx card, either PCI-E AGP or PCI, and not your onboard. The long beeping noise is referred to as a POST code. It will usually have a repeating pattern. Check your motherboard manual or visit gigabyte's website to see what the code is referring to. And you never know the card might be bad ESD happens when you least expect it. Try it in a friends PC.
