Hi,
first of all, none of your links work.

second, all those modules will work as long as they are compatible with the motherboard and will fit in size. So, you'll need to find the motherboard make/model and head over to the manufacturer website for certified list of approved RAM.

On the other hand you could bite the bullet and buy the sticks, but there's a possibility they won't work correctly. I don't know if the BIOS on the alienware is locked or not, if it is, then I doubt you'll be able to troubleshoot RAM problems, in which case you'll have to return the ones that don't work and buy other.
