Basically I got a new PC with faulty RAM and after I asked them to replace it, they told me it was fine.
I've decided to just replace it myself, any suggestions on what sort of thing I should look for(price range upto about £120)
I'll post my computer spec later.

Give us your make and model of your motherboard. Link us and we will help.

As a side note, never buy from them again. You and I both know it is faulty RAM or that they didn't set the voltage correctly in the BIOS.

Did you ever run Memtest per stick?

Nope I never ran a memtest per stick
I'll have to post the PC spec in about 30 mins as I've been busy all day

RAM: (faulty) cant remember exact spec but something pretty similar to 4GB Mushkin Radioactive #996983 (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz 6-9-7-24
sound card: none
PSU: 750W

That RAM won't work because it is tri-channel and only Intel boards are designed for trichannel memory. You have an AMD board.

By the way, your PSU is more than sufficient.

Well I do know that the 2 gig series of the same product is on the Qualified Vendors List with same timings and voltage.
