Dell XPS 8500 Memory Upgrade

Hello everyone, I have a Dell XPS 8500 with the following specs:
Intel Core i5 3350P @ 3.1GHz, 8GB of the default memory that comes with the system, 1TB Hard Drive, EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB w/ ACX Cooler, Regular XPS 8500 Dell Motherboard, and a 460 Watt power supply. I was wondering what the best and cheapest compatible 16 Gigabyte Quad Channel memory upgrade would be. Also if there is a cheap 32GB Quad Channel Memory kit out there that would be great.

Thank You for your time,
Shadow.

    Why would you want quad-channel memory for a CPU that supports only dual-channel memory? the four slots still make it dual-channel.

    I'm also of the opinion that you'd be hard pushed to utilize that much memory in that PC.

    However, if you insist, Dell will sell you compatible memory and here is the manual for how to upgrade and the guidelines for mixing old and new memory modules.
