Does it use DDR2 or just DDR memory? that's the only thing you need to consider. Though, it being a dell, there's no point in buying that kind of memory since it'll just run at the same stock PC3200 speed until you start overclocking. So it's a waste.

Only way you can make any kind of effective use of that memory is to have a board that support overclocking. All buying PC4000 or whatever gets you is RAM that's been tested to run bus speeds of 250MHz, but running it in a stock system it will still just default to the stock PC3200 speeds. DDR2 or DDR can be determined by a CPU-Z screen shot, or of you have a lot of time... count the pins
