prime95 just tests for stability, you gotta move beyond that now

download memtest86, put it on a floppy, and set boot priority to floppy disk (boot from floppy)

that's the only way you will test if your ram is actually good, don't try to not do this b/c it sounds hard

K, I will do that. Just now I was playing for over an hour and I've had no reboots this whole time, Half-Life 2 is actually still running in the background while I type this.

My full load temps on my CPU and motherboard are around 35, the highest I've seen them is 40 but again I just want to know, could these temperatures possibly cause a failure?

I will check out memtest tomorrow since it's getting late here but thanks again for the advice, I'd like to get this problem fixed and over with.
