I wish I could. However, mine is the only modern computer around. I was upgrading from an Optiplex GX150, and that was new compared to the other computers in this house.
Can you try the RAM test in another computer? That will tell you if there's a problem with the RAM.

Local computer shop in this town? No way. I'm fairly sure this town hasn't even discovered PCs yet.
Maybe you can get a local computer shop to run a test for a minimal charge? Because of the history that you relate, I suspect the motherboard (both the brass standoff thing and the changing addresses of the RAM test).
If the RAM is still new, can you RMA it? At least that'll give you another try. I'd hate to recommend a new mobo without at least testing the RAM.

That's the kind of stuff you suddenly get a real appreciation for, after having built a system or two. Next step is to try out an ASUS Q-Connector Kit. After that you'll never go back.
On a random note, the layout on this motherboard absolutely sucks. It's terrible. I've got a mess of wires going in every which way, because ports are placed in horribly awkward places. Nothing I can do about that, but oh well.
