Finally found some info on finding ram. I opened task manager then clicked performance and ram. Below the graph it will show ram speed, ram sots, and form factor. Also was looking at a youtube vid https://www.crucial.com/ has a hardware detect feature and will even recommend supported ram to buy.

I personally bought the Ballistix sport LT from amazon but the thing is this memory will run only at 2400 Mhz because dell bios doesnt support xlm profiles or you can simply buy the regular crucial one
