Yup, it will work as long as you have a socket AM3 motherboard. DDR3 is not compatible with socket AM2/AM2+ motherboards

The second one. Larger screen, same specs as the first, but cheaper.

Those are not socket AM3 motherboards. Those are socket AM2+ with AM3 support. A true socket AM3 has only 938 pins and AM2 processors will not fit in them as they have 940 pins.
