I don't know what Dell is doing about Windows in the consumer market... but if you don't really want Vista, I'd suggest you push them to give you a machine with Windows XP. I believe they're still selling it on their business side. I don't know exactly what RAM to recommend, but in general it's often cheaper to just take whatever their base offering is, and then buy & add your own memory upgrade separately.

I don't know much about video cards, but I'd suggest looking at the system recommendations for the games you're interested in and starting there.
