comment I have been told to accept one error with Memtest86+
He means valid as in "intermittent errors are real errors, not an artifact of Memtest". But that doesn't necessarily translate to faulty RAM. Intermittent RAM errors happen, that's why there is such a thing as error-correcting RAM. Google measured it on their servers: "an average DIMM experiences nearly 4000 correctable errors per year".

comment I have been told to accept one error with Memtest86+
Agree with @Shinrai - if there weren't occasional intermittent glitches with normal RAM, there would be no market for error correcting RAM. Repeated errors at the same address is a different matter, that would indicate a faulty memory cell.

comment Core i3-2100 with 65W power supply?
@Kyle Sure, and I'm in full agreement with your answer. (Thanks for the calculator link BTW, it's the most accurate of its kind I've seen.) My comment was merely a slightly OT speculation on alternative scenarios where "i3-2100 with 65W PSU?" might actually work.
