Default Help Ram Problem

Hey people,

i first posted a thread asking help because all my comp games were crashing, but i fixed it

for some reason when i removed one stick of 512 RAM, it fixed the problem,

but I dont want to go and have to buy another stick of RAM, and it doesnt sound like the problem was with the RAM stick

it seems to me that theyre might be a problem with power going to the RAM, im still unsure

note: PSU is 480w
:motherboard is fairly new, installed it recently (few weeks ago)
