  5. In my case, I didn't and I have a Dell Pentium 4, 2.2GHZ 512MB DDR. I
    ordered it with only 256MB DDR and when Office Max had their big sale,
    got another 256MB, free with rebates. I believe it is PNY or Kingston.
    Can't remember which though.

    For all of thier systems made in the last few years you can use any brand of

    For older machines, especially servers, you must use dell RAM and power
    supplys amongst other proprietry components.

    No. Download a free program called Aida32 or Everest Home Edition which will
    show you your exact memory type and configuration. Then you can purchase
    from or any other memory vendor.
