My System Specs

Default

If the card is unstable, the software(Kombustor) will show how many errors in the opened window, and also check out for artifacts on the screen (odd colors, colored squares, etc).

Memtest 86+ is run from a USB stick, not within the OS. If you wish to keep the ram test as easy as possible, download and run Memtest (MemTest for Windows Download Page).
Start 16 windows (yes, 16), with 1000Mb reserved for each. Let it run until all windows reach 100%. One single error is one too many.

6+ hours of Prime is fine. You could have used Linx for a speedier check though.
