So nothing is stopping you from using a 64 bit OS. Also, Is my selection of memory proper or is there a particular way to choose RAMs?
Ramhound I never assumed that the OP was using Windows, but it’s probably a safe assumption, so I’ll accept that. Keeping your old 2 x MB means that you do not need to add more than 2 GiB.
What model of dell computer is this? Zach L and others have explained this already.

To expand on Zach L’s answer, we don’t know you exact motherboard model posting the model of your Dell computer would helpbut based on the information provided, it’s safe to say that you currently have a motherboard that supports DDR2 RAM modules the individual sticks of RAM are called “DIMMs” and you are currently using PC modules, based on your memory frequency.
