This is my first build so I'm kinda confused by everything and not sure exactly what is going on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Currently the specs are

E6600
Asus p5b green
Geforce 8800 gtx
antec 550 w atx12v v2.2
Corsair DDR2 CM2x1024-6400 Ram XMS6405v5.1 800 mhz 5-5-5-12
Seagate 7200 RPM SATA

Upon boot all fans work. The LED lights up good on mobo and it seems everything is working fine. I get one initial beep then two short beeps shortly after and then it turns off about 5-10 seconds after the two short beeps.

I have no optical disc drive installed yet and no keyboard or anything plugged up, not sure if this is needed. I have wireless keyboard and mouse so I doubt that would work right away anyway.

Sounds like a RAM issue by the way you describe the beeps. Make sure you have them firmly inserted and in the right slots. Try reinserting your RAM. Rarely, you may have a compatiblity issue with your RAM and MB. Check Corsair's website to see that everything is compatible, I remember they have a good little utility that will let you check. . .
