BSOD Randomly, tried 2 graphics cards, and reformat

So i just built this new PC well I upgraded everything from my old one except the hard drives and reformatted and installed x64 Windows 7 because I have 8GB of RAM now

It started getting BSOD right away so I updated some drivers and checked the memory, everything there was okay and it kept getting them, I was using a Radeon HD5670 but now have put my old Nvidia 8600GT back inside the computer because it seems more stable.

Here are all the minidump files, i don't know which is the latest because my system clock went all crazy

I looked at them using BlueScreenViewer and they all appear to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe

I know that you said that you checked memory. Nonetheless, every dump that I checked (did not check them all) indicates a memory problem
Using memtes86 and making 8 passes and cheking each slot with a know good stick for 8 passes; retest.

Did you mix and match ram?

I ran memtest86 on both sticks together and individually on different slots, they returned millions of errors each time, i read somewhere that increasing the voltage might fix it.

But i tried turning it on this morning, all the fans turned on and the cd drive span up but the screen remained black

You have memory problems. That must be corrected. I dont think the voltage will help in this situation.

Will i need a new type of ram or just replacements for the sticks i have?

First, you have to decide: Is it the mother board or the ram. If the motherboad you have to get that replaced.
If its the sticks. I would not replace one or two, I would go out and buy all new.
This will help you with the type of RAM that you need

Im fairly sure it wouldent be the motherboard, but i could get both sticks replaced for free with the same make/model RAM or will i need a different brand?

I would rely on the test that I gave you in my prior post. Buy what is suggested by that scan.
