Default Dell question

Do Dells allow non Dell brand name RAM module to run on the motherboard? I have a friend who wants more RAM for his Dell but isn't sure if this will work with it.

As long as the system takes DDR memory, but you might want to check the speed of his memory. The one you show is pc2100 but many systems are pc3200
