As far as fit physically, they should. Although, I can't find anything that says the memory will work with the Dell motherboard. :cry: 
Also, What Power supply do you have? It may or may not have enough power for the video card. :(

clarkjd isn't that intelligent apparently because he didn't look at the simple specs of the link you posted. yes, both the memory and graphics card for what you listed will work just fine with that pc :)

The Inspiron 530 came with a 300 Watt power supply.

Since the Radeon HD 5670 obtains all of its power through the PCI Express slot you don't need to worry about the power supply having a 6-pin PCI Express Supplementary Power Connector.

You haven't specified the Inspiron 530 model that you have or whether you are reusing any existing memory modules.

Memory capacities: 512 MB, 1 GB or 2 GB

Maximum memory: 4 GB (Inspiron 530/530b/530d) 8 GB(Inspiron 530a/530c)

I went to the GSkill website and couldn't get their selector to display any dell desktops. I also went to Newegg, and used their memory selector, and that didn't display any gskill ram modules. Just because something meets the "simple specs" doesn't mean that it will work. If that were the case, then we wouldn't need qualified vendor lists of memory for motherboards, now would we?

At any rate we can disagree without having to get personal..

The PSU I have (came with the computer) is a 350w. I don't know if you are thinking of the slimline or not, but mine is a regular size case. I believe it is the b...not sure because there isn't any letters on the case. Just Dell Inspiron 530. But if the PSU size helps, it is a 350w and the memory capacity is 4GB. Also, I will not be reusing any of the old memory. And it has a quad core processor Q6600 .

Yes. The Quad core came with the 350 Watt power supply and the non-quad cores had the 300 Watt.

The new G.Skill memory modules should work.
