ok the PC comes with 3 Gigs of ram, I have 2 gigs left over from my last build. I just pulled them out and it reads1GB

So can I add it, to reach the max 4 GB Ram, or no?

It looks like the Dell 530 uses DDR2 800Mhz ram so the old ram you have will not work. But as you have 3gb anyway going to 4gb will make little or no difference. Windows 32 bit can only use just over 3gb anyway. To use more you have to go to a 64bit os and that is full of its own problems, mostly on the driver front.
