Based on the symptoms you've described, it doesn't sound like the issue
is memory-related, but you should definitely test your RAM anytime you
build a new system or upgrade it's memory or processor. For this, try
Memtest86 or Memtest86+ (easily found via Google). These come as simple
boot disks which don't touch your hard drive and run through about 9-11
tests on your ram, which would probably take about 20 minutes on your
system. If there are any problems found *at all*, then you should fix
that before you move on. It's worthwhile to at least run this to
eliminate this as a possible cause.
