Dell Ram upgrades

  costlyspy 13:52 05 Apr 2006

A friend has asked me to upgrade his ram in a Dell machine. It's currently got one stick of 256Mb Sdram PC133 on a dell mobo.

Can anyone tell me if Dell machine needs special Ram as I've seen some 512Mb PC133 advertised for a Dell at £50 inc vat, but the same Kingston stick non-ecc but not advertised for a Dell is about £45.

I know this is only a fiver but would like to know for future reference.

They'd be daft to fit non-standard memory - it's usually the PSU that is the only non-standard part.
