    That memory you linked to is 200-pin DDR2 memory -- for laptops.
    You have not included enough details on what you are trying to do. Are you trying to upgrade a desktop computer or a laptop?

    We would also need to find out if your motherboard has any unused RAM slots, since you already have 2x256MB modules.

    Download CPU-Z and run it.
    Look under the "Mainboard" tab and tell us what it says for the name (model and manufacturer) of the motherboard.

    generally yes.
    read the installing ram guide in the guides forum.
    You may need to swap out sticks if you nly have 2 slots.
    2 x 512mb for example

    you will need to take out the current ram and install 2 x 512mb sticks. Go with brands that Dell recommends.
    You can sell the olds 256mb sticks on ebay.
