Hard Memory Dumps

I recently installed an AMD FX 8350 and EVGA GTX 660 in my machine and have been randomly getting hard memory dumps.

I have an ASUS M5A97 AMD 9 Series AM3+ Motherboard and CRUCIAL 4GB DDR3 1333 MT/S (PC3-10600) Ram.

I did the standard memory check with Windows 7 and errors were detected. So it’s obvious, to me at least, one or both of my RAM modules is going bad.

Now I’m running 1333 Ram and my Bard will support 1866.

Can I get your thoughts on the Hard Memory dump and recommendations on a new RAM purchase?

Thinking about going with Corsair Vengeance Pro Series Blue 8GB DDR3 1866 MHZ as its $99 on Amazon.

    If the RAM is failing tests, RMA it and get them to replace it.

    $99 is overpriced. There's nothing special about the Pro modules, other than the lump of metal on top.

    If you do go for new RAM, I'd get this, or this if you really want 1866.
