Memtest86+ and 2 BSOD problem :S

Hello, i have recently built my new pc, and i have had 2 problems with the ram so far.

First time was 1 week ago or so, the same day i built and installed windows 7 and everything i got this image.

and i got this same image I THINK, yesterday but it was late at night and my mum called me and asked me and i was too tiered to read it properly but i thing its the same. Or believe so...

So that was 2 BSOD's.

Also because of that yesterday i was told to use memtest86, so i downloaded the memtest86+ version, dont know why... and i run that.

Here are some images.

After pass3 i just thought, no point running any longer, shows how bad this ram is doesnt it...

Anyways should i return it?

Also if i do return it, should i ask for a replacement, or ask for a refund and buy this instead?

because that one will have faster delivery.

thank you :)  Not too sure what to do, im using this pc right now, its running fine, just randomly did that BSOD twice...

You didn't mention the brand of the corrupted RAM, but anyway Kingston is a trusted name.
P.S. Why the double post?
