Newegg bundles offer even better discounts and often include RAM, cases, etc. in addition to the motherboard and processor.

That's why I said "unless it's mixed RAM". I meant if they used mixed quantities (like 2x 2GB and 2x 1GB). In that case though, you have to discard RAM to upgrade.

Also, you'd be surprised, many PCs will opt for an odd number of modules.

The RAM quantity is fine and it won't be for gaming.

That's all good with 1366.

Also: I've never seen it with Dell, not unless people try to install more RAM as an "upgrade" and neglect to put the proper number of modules in. To be completely honest I've never seen an odd number of RAM modules in a non-1366 machine made by any big-name unless it's just 1 stick.

Windows 7 OEM $110
Core i7 2600K $280
AMD 6450 $50
8GB generic ram $50 or cheeper on sale
1TB HDD $65

$505 for those components, upgrading to the K version for overclockability

add a decent MB, PSU, cheep case/Keyboard/mouse, maybe add aftermarket heatsink

I think you can keep the build under $700 for a comparable system with overclockability. Plus you get the benefit of choosing a HDD to fit your needs, use IGP on the i7 if you don't need graphics or add a better card if you do, and get your own choice of mouse/keyboard.

I was talking about in general with lower end OEM PCs, not in regards to LGA 1366.

My sister has an HP that has 3GB total (2GB + 1GB) and it may have an even number of modules, but as they are mismatched, it's not running in dual channel. It does happen.

craptastic prebuilt dell...

not a bad price if you don't want to overclock, never plan to add anything more than a hdd to it... and love dealing with dell support...

check the reviews of it not booting, locking up all the time...

There's a reason there is a 100$ discount... probably not worth it...
