Prime95 is really the test to see if a computer is stable. It calculates Pi and includes a Torture Test mode or something of the sorts, I used it a long time ago. It's effective at testing both CPU and memory stability very well. Let that run for a couple hours and, if no errors, you're stable.

Prime95 is good Heavy Load is another good one. All of these should be on hand for anyone that repairs or tinkers with PC's. No one tool is best for all situations. Memtest86 was designed from the ground up to test memory the other two programs where designed to burn in PC's. Personaly if the PC is just sitting around I would run them all, but I would also consider testing and pushing computers to their limits "fun".
