I believe you may have missed my last post

I'd edit but you'd likely miss that edit as your reading this thread.
Can you measure the physical dimensions of your case to see what the maximum length of a PCIe card you could fit in there. Also can you tell me what the physical dimensions are of your PSU?
Also, can you confirm that your PC is indeed PCIe, not AGP. I'd assume it's PCIe because your processor is a Pentium D, but I want to know for sure

As for the memory error please do the following:
Click this for a guide to using Memtest

Click this to download Memtest

Run it overnight if possible

The tool above will tell us if your memory is at fault.

Even if it was because of that reason there would still be a solution or complaint on the Internet. You can find anything on the internet. Also have you tried differnet slots to see if it fixes the problem? Also running memtest as james suggested will find any problems that may be wrong with the memory, make sure you run it for a long period of time like maybe a couple of hours.

Interestingly enough, I have had a cheap "generic" power supply take out my motherboard and RAM... :)
