I've never seen a pure memory error signalled as a "CPU problem" before, so you 
may truly have a bad chip (defective, too!).  Is the BIOS recent enough to have 
do a hardware-level diagnositic (i.e, anything more than the basic memory test?)

I'd try replacing the cache memory first before I went for the system ram, at 
least if the ram is from a "reliable" vendor...
