    PCI Express has nothing to do with the ram. you need to know what kind of ram is installed and then buy more of the same. you need to also make sure that yu have available ram slots for the new ram.

    if you dont know any of the above then download SIW and run it to find out the make and type of ram yu have and available ram slots.

    If you look up the specification for your system on the Dell website, then you will see the RAM type also.
