You'll see a bit of additional performance out of that, but it's probably not worth $100. Intel system thrive on bandwidth with a lesser emphasis on timings. So although you will see a bit of a boost, it won't help you all that much (I'm assuming you're running at stock since you have a Dell mobo).

You best option would be to buy a decent overclocking mobo and save up for some killer RAM. If you want to stick with Corsair, check out the 3200XL. That's the best they have in that product line.
