More than likely you are running DDR ram. Here is a website that shows the differences between types or ram.

Kingston has a configurator that finds compatable ram.

CPU-Z shows that you have DDR400 memory. DDR400 and PC3200 both mean the same kind of memory. I have never found DELL to be that picky about memory so just about any memory on sale at the local stores that is DDR400( PC3200) memory should be good.
