You mean they don't offer the RAM of your choice? I tried to configure one and I manage to get the fast RAM they had. It just adds to the cost though. I hate all the bloatware they want to try to get you to get. I didn't want any of their crap such as Yahoo Music, AOL, Works, Mcafee, etc.

I think dell makes an alright machine. I have one and since I put a new HDD and DVD burner in it, I've ad no problems with it and even though it's only a P4 I managed to get it running like a swiss watch.

Also, I'd personally upgrade to an E6600 or E6700 if possible. Those seem to be pretty popular and are good chips. If you plan on gaming, it might be worth the upgrade.

If you have to do that you could always double check what components dell is using then save up and buy a new board to put in the dell tower. That would set you back $150-250 but then you could overclock and customize it all you want.

That sucks. Even the XPS model, the RAM are all the same. Dell just don't like high speed RAMs in their system. Even some of the laptops are using the low speed memory bus. Terrible. Just like mine.
