    Well the point A you made is half right because yes the Stick is bad but also mixing the RAM sticks like that can cause problems if you get 2Gb like nickc said then they have to be both exactly the same, e.g. Same Manufacturer, Same Memory Size, Same Bus Speed etc. Basically identical.

    The Small FFT's test mainly tests the CPU the other 2 test a bit of RAM and Mainly RAM, i may have mentioned this before but just to confirm here.

    Sounds good. I'll try to obtain another 1 GB stick just as soon as the budget allows.

    This thread was quite successful! Thanks so much for your help everyone!!
