Make sure they are exactly the same to avoid incompatiblity. The timings are different in those RAMs you got up there even though they are from the same manufacturer and same size. One is a dual channel kit meaning it comes with 2 memory sticks for dual configuration and the other one is just a single stick. You have the dual one?

what kind of motherboard do you have? Does it support dual channel memory support? If it does, always go dual channel for better performance.

That link gave me an error so I couldn't see it. If it does support dual channel DDR SDRAM, yes, absolutely get it. If that Geil one is the one you want, then it's ok to have.

That's the first link you had up there.

Temperature wise? I'm sure it will run hotter, but not that hot depending how much he OC it.

Overclocking the Athlon 64 3000+ to 2.2GHz can improve the performance by another 7-8%. It is not only higher CPU clock frequency that contributes to the performance improvement here, but also faster memory, higher working frequencies of HyperTransport and PCI-e buses.
