    you have dell (OEM) hardware on your hands, and it is not compatible with standard cases, power supplies, and most RAM. sorry, this is how the oem builders make thier cash...

    and if you're new to computers i reccomend not upgrading the hardddrive yourself, because often well-meaning users such as yourself ruin thier machines when they accidentally damage something during said procedure.
