    I've got a 2008 Mac Pro. I can't use Apple Hardware Test because I've switched out my GPU for a regular non-Apple one, and its graphics drivers don't seem to support it. I've come across Remember, a GUI front-end for memtest. Does this do the same thing as the AHT RAM test? If not, is there something else that does?

    It does basically the same thing as the memory section of AHT.

    You should use memtest straight from a boot disk. If you use memtest in OS X, it cannot check any of the memory that's in use, which is a very significant chuck of your memory.

    I know setting up a boot disk is extra work, but if you're going out of your way to test your memory you might as well test all of it.
