Hi,
What is memory required for Dell r250?  
I can see it's PC3-12800R DDR3. Will any DDR3 will work with it?

Thanks

There's no such model as a Dell r250.  Do you mean a R210?  Typically if it is a server, you need server specific memory to work properly so the answer is no, not any DDR3 will work.

Most servers need ECC RAM. Also, when getting RAM for a Server the following Link can help:

They guarantee that the RAM they sell works for the PC you order it for.

PowerEdge R210 requires unbuffered memory (UDIMM's) - Registered memory (RDIMM's) will not work.  1333MHz (1600 may work, but will only operate at 1333), 16GB max with 4GB DIMM's.

Refer to page 27 of the manual for population rules:

No, it won't work.  The memory, like with nearly all servers, must be ECC.  The memory in your link is non-ECC.

Also, the DIMM you linked to is an 8GB DIMM.  Only 4GB DIMM's are supported, for a max of 16GB.
