I am reinstalling Windows 7 on this machine. I've been having some trouble with it for the past few days. I've ran some hardware diagnostics and it has reported some memory errors; however, I'm feeling a bit convinced these problems are relating to the graphics card...

Some other forums are reporting it has something to do with the Nvidia Video Card and that's exactly what's in this machine. But with no OS, what else is there to do? Is the next step just to replace the video card?

When memory diagnostics report faulty RAM, that's usually the case. If you haven't used it already, the most trustworthy memory test is MemTest86: Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

Run it for at least seven passes before dismissing it. If errors are found, try taking all but one memory module out and test each at a time to find the culprit. Also be sure to alternate slots; it's possible that there's something wrong with the motherboard or the slots themselves.

MemTest 86 needs to be run one one module at a time to yield accurate results.
