You aren't going to be seeing an amazing difference with a 600MHz OC on an Intel except for benchmarking. The extra RAM is only going to make a difference when playing games/using programs that actually use that extra memory provided, try BF2 or something, then you'll see a difference.

well, to see a 'difference,' you'dve had to play the game before and after... You made your machine slightly better, but nothing completely noticeable.

run msconfig and turn off start up programs and you may see a diff. Dell tends to slam a load of programs on startup

Yeah, the problem is probably the fact that its a dell. Did you reinstall windows with the dell cd?
