Default Looking for a new computer. Suggestions Needed!!

ok im a little out of touch with the market right now, but i did a little research and I know i would like: 2.5Ghz+ pro. power, 512Mb+ RAM and at least a 128Mb Graphics card.

Id like to use the computer for Gaming and studying, surfing the web, etc. nothing too demanding.

Some suggestion would be appreciated.

Dell looks the best option

what RAM is better: - 1024MB PC-4200 Dual Channel DDR2 533MHz [2x512] [add £129.25 or £3/month1]

or

1024MB Dual Channel DDR2 400MHz [2x512] [add £94.00 or £2/month1]
