Actually, if the Crucial compatibility check is anything to go by, your Inspiron 530 motherboard can't handle 2GB DIMMS. You don't have the choice and will need to use 4 x 1GB. (technically, if you're out of money, you could buy a single 2 x 1GB kit, retain your existing 1GB module and run with 3GB).
