I bought memory from Crucial to upgrade the RAM on my Dell 5100. No bother at all and a lot cheaper tha buying it from Dell.

I have upgraded my RAM, converted to Ethernet added Firewire using none of Dell equipment with no trouble at all. If you upgrade your RAM make sure that the motherboard will support it.Crucial is a good place to find out.
