Default Alienware memory upgrade help

i just bought a alienware m9700 but i did want to pay the redicouls prices for all the upgrades. im looking to upgrade the ram. the m9700 is using
# Dual-Channel DDR SDRAM at 400MHz
# 2 dedicated SO-DIMM slots for Dual-Channel DDR Memory

Im wondering if i can use this ram

No, it won't. Odds are taht DDR he has is PC3200. If that's the case, he cannot use DDR2, like he has linked, you would need normal DDR memory.

400Mhz is the fastest He'll be able to get with out Oc'ing. As long as he gets PC-3200 SO-Dimms, he has the best he can get in that lappy.
