OK, I've gotten 2 conflicting memory compatability responses, and I get squat back from Dell Tech.
Here is the simple question: I have a Dell 5150, what memory is compatable?

For the dimension 5150 Its pc2 3200 (400-MHz) or pc2 4200 (533-MHz DDR2) non-ecc max 4gb (4x1gb sticks), i would suggest matching the mhz with what you have if your just adding ram.
For the Inspiron 5150 200 pin sodimm pc2700 (333mhz) max 2gb (2x1gb sticks)

Great!  I had a few sites say PC2 5300 (667-MHz) also, which was throwing me off.  I just wanted to make sure so I wasn't out $100 for 512 of RAM I can't use.  I'm not sure what I have exactly, I have to check that when I get a chance.
Thanks!
