I am searching for 256 Ram 333mhz. So I called Dell and they told me that their ram is proprietary to Dell so no other brand would work??? Is this true? The ram that is in there is not Dell brand, it is "nanya" . It wouldn't be a big deal except their ram is much more expensive. Hope someone can help.

Any ram of the same type(DDR by the looks of it) and the same speed would work.

You can use the websites from crucial and corsair to find out what memory you can put in and get a guarantee of it working.

what? corsair.com you mean. Not sure, never really do upgrades. And I know the typical best buy never knows much... Best Buy wants 80 dollars for a 512 bar? not sure if that is good deal, plus if it doesn't work??

Actually that is a good price, I was looking at DDR 333 ram on NewEgg and the average was about 70- 100. There was one for like 56 but I don't know if that will work on your computer.

Seems steep but prices for memory are unusually high these days. Yeah corsair.com and crucial.com last time i looked they both had memory selection tools.
