    Yeah . I loaded windows onto my ssd. Because my raid hdd. Died.
    It worked fine for a little bit then got random restarts. Then I was playing dayz. It decided to restart. And then I got the beeps when it rebooted.

    You can try reseating the card. Otherwise, swap the card with a known good spare. That will confirm an actual video card issue. Or test the video card in another PC.

    Most likely cause would be the video card itself, or the power supply.

    There is no way to determine what is at fault without swapping/replacing parts.

    Have you tried removing/reseating the video card? Are the power cables still properly attached to the video card?

    Aside from that, as noted, you will need to test/swap/replace parts.
