To make a very long story short, my Shuttle SFF ST20G5 has a RAM slot where no matter what I place in it, an instant BSOD with no POST whenever I try something memory intensive. This kinda stinks because the motherboard only has 2 RAM slots, and I have two 1gb Nspire PC 3200 DDR 400 sticks.

Is there any way this is something other than the Motherboard, or does a bad RAM socket usually mean that?

Is there any way to repair the slot (will boot into windows fine but only freezes with a ram intensive thing like video encoding) or am I forced to buy another Motherboard?

I have thought about just buying a new Ultra Products Microfly case and transfering my stuff, not having to worry about Shuttle (case is 2 years old and Shuttle is in Japan...). Is this a good case, as I want to stick with the SFF idea for college.

I forgot to mention, my computer is a socket 939 and right now I have an AMD Athlon 4800x2 in there. I just spent a bit on this processor (upgraded about three weeks ago), however, option three is sell the system as it is right now with only one RAM slot and buy a new AM2 MB, case, etc, DDR2, etc.

So in short, what would be my best option?
