Not true but rd ram is really expensive and you might find a new system could cost less.
Check here: www.crucial.com and put in your dell model number.

LOL, I wouldn't expect to see too many systems with more than 1 gb of ram at that price, when you could get an entire new system with 2-4gb of ram for the price of just 2gb of rdram. That is ridiculous.

Ok yes it is ridiculous but remember 1 gb of rdram really is almost equivalent to 2 gb ddr in performance. You would not believe the difference if you tried it. never the less the price is nonsense.
