So, for the last month or so, my system has become increasingly unstable when running games (Starcraft 2 very much in particular). Given that this has roughly co-incided with installing a new graphics card, I thought that might be the problem. However, on a whim, I ran Memtest 86 and got these results:

key: [test] {errors}

Lowest Error Adress: 00000000000 - 0.0MB [0] {56}
Highest Error Adress: 000ffffffff - 4095.9MB [1] {24}
Bits in Error Mask: 0001fffc [2] {40}
Bits in error - total: 15 Min:0 Max:14 Avg:8 7 [3] {56}
Max Contiguous Errors:2 [4] {72}
ECC Correctable Errors [5] {88}
Errors per memory slot 84208028 [6] {104}
[7] {120}
2:0 [8] {136}
3:0 538982199 [9] {152}
[10] {168}

Is this really as bad as it looks?

Yes it looks bad, you will need to replace your ram.

Sorry that it took so long to reply, but it took a week for my new RAM to arrive. The new RAM seems to have sorted out my problems, so I just want to thank you guys for the advice on the results.
