Dell = the new cheap and crappy computer distributer. I remeber when they put out quality products, now they are cheap and crappy like everyone else. There are a ton of places online to build your own PC that YOU want for so much cheaper then the crap you will get at a place like Dell.

Not use it, trust me I saved about 200 dollars getting ram from newegg instead of with cyberpower. Their prices on ram haven't seemed to update from the huge ram price drop that occured on april/may. If you don't know about the huge price drop, quality rams like corsair and g.skill went from $240 for 2 gigs of ddr2 pc6400 to $110

Actually Im pretty sure if u keep the corsair value select ram in ur system along with Gskill overclocked ram, it will cause severe system instability. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can elaborate...
