Hmm, that's strange. How big is your power supply?

Does the computer continue to start up after the beeps? Probably not i assume.

hmm i dont know. And you are 100% of all the connections (mainly the sli connector)? Maybe one of the cards is dead, have you tried using both individually (like putting just one in, testing it, then taking that one out and putting in the other to test that one)?

edit - nm the second question, i see you've tried it.

Lol, seems like it's always the simplest things that make everything go wrong. PCI-e video cards are a lot more trickier than regular AGP cards. That little notch at the end has to be snapped in just as you were to install RAM.
