Motherboard giving error codes and beeping

This is my first computer build and when I first boot up, I get no input on the monitor. Instead I get beeping and an error code. I tried replacing the memory and it would still beep. I tried removing the video card and I still get beeping.

Specs:
i7 3930k
RIVE
Gtx 670
samsung 30nm memory
plextor m3
rosewill blackhawk ultra
Seasonic 1000 Platinum
TR silver arrow sb e

I currently have an error code of a0 and i think one long beep then four short beeps then another long beep and ten five short beeps. I previously had error codes 14 which switched to 61 to 66. Another time I have constant beeping. I don't know what is the problem. If it matters, I got the Cpu from ebay. I got the mobo and the graphics card as open boxes off ebay. Mobo seemed fine but the video card had a bent io shield and I believe I had two screws come out. Before all this beeping came I also had the problem of the computer turning on only for a second and turning back off but that seems find now.

Yeah mate it sounds like your VGA is not happy.

Not comfortable with Ebay open box stuff to be quite blunt.

Yeah so I pulled out my gfx and now I'm getting an error A0 and I get what I believe to be one long four short beeps and then a pause followed by a different kind of beep with another pause and then one long and four short beeps again. And this is when my gfx isn't plugged in.

Pretty sure you have tried all the PCIe slots, and that you have checked that the PCie toggles are on. But just in case please try again.

Ok tried different PCIe slot but seems to be no difference. I recounted the beeps and I think I mistakened it. It is one long with an error 62 then a 5 second pause which is followed by 5 beeps and then another brief second pause followed by one more short beep with the error now stuck on A0.

Without gfx it has one long and then 3 short which means no vga detected I believe so I don't think the gfx is now the problem. It is still followed by one long and then 4 short and then a second pause with another short pause (miscounted again).
