Powerful & Fast Computer for around a grand

I need a new Desktop PC and I want it to run well. First, what are good combinations of processor and memory? Intel's Ivy Bridge I7 processors look the best, and I'm guessing 10 gb of ram would suffice, or would it? I'm not buying an Apple, but HP? Compaq? Dell? What combination of processor/ram/brand would you recommend for a desktop somewhere around a thousand dollars? Thanks! [more inside]

Did my new RAM kill my video adapter?

BSODFilter: I tried to install a RAM upgrade in my girlfriend's Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, and got nothing on screen after powerup. So I replaced the old DIMM, and got the BSOD -- the file that was missing was a driver for the Intel video adapter. Long story short, it's still not working. [more inside]

Do I need to add RAM in matching pairs?

Do I have to add RAM in matched pairs to my dullard of a Dell Dimension 110? I've gotten conflicting information and don't know who to believe. I need to finish this post haste to meet a client deadline and I'm freaked at the prospect of ruining my computer, dismal as it is. I've got 256 and I'm trying to add another 100.

Dell RAM upgrade rumors

When shopping around at Best Buy and Circuit City, I've been told that for Dell desktops (Dimension 4500 to be exact), generic RAM will not work and must be bought directly from Dell. Does anyone else out here have prior experience in upgrading their Dell's RAM and can support/debunk this?
