Have you tried the Crucial website ??
I buy all my RAM & SODIMM from Crucial . Very good company ,and they do a swift refund if the memory is wrong . Visit there website and type in the make and model of your PC/Laptop and they should have the details and the max amount of memory you can use .

2Gb (in 2 x 1Gb modules) is the max the Dell can take. According to Crucial. A 1Gb module is £24.66 from crucial. You could look at the Crucial spec and see if you can get it cheaper elsewhere e.g. ebuyer but Crucial do have a very good reputation

Jack memory upgrades are probably the easiest hardware upgrades you can undertake with a desktop PC. SFF PCs might be a little more difficult if the ram slots are awkward to access but every Dell I've seen for the past 10 years could be opened by pressing a couple of buttons or a lever.

The great thing about Dell is the support: here's the online Service Manual for the GX260

And here's Crucial's guide to installing Dimm modules http://www.crucial.com/uk/install/dimm.aspx

I agree with Ricko but I thought the Crucial website could scan your computer and tell exactly what you've got and what you can have and what it recommends.
