Just heard now - it is a budget PC. I think you mistakenly put 12Gb DDR3 memory. For a branded or non branded you make sure that their is an after sales support. This is a good build for office work, lite loads, and internet surfing.

No that's what I'm saying, its 12 GB! (the link to it is at bottom)

I even started an excel sheet of how much it would cost me to build from scratch the components in this system and I stopped after calculating the memory- which was like $180 with 12 Gigs of Patriot memory + the case design won me over, I couldn't find one from Fry's that would look as nice in an office environment.
