The CPU is terrible. It's honest to god the slowest processor I have ever seen in the last 3 years at least. More RAM isn't going to help things much.

Upgrade to 6GB. I'm assuming you're using 1GB+2GB. Pull out the 1GB stick and put in a 4GB stick. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The voltage doesn't really matter unless you are overclocking. It will work with your current RAM. In the old days it was different. Certain brands wouldn't work with others. Now things are different. As long as it fits it will work.

My other concern is that it uses PC3-12800 and my computer uses PC3-10700

A higher speed stick of RAM will downclock to whatever speed the other one runs at.

I noticed you mentioned that the difference in voltage won't matter unless I overclock my processor, I might do that with something like k10 or bravos tweaker, will the voltage still not really matter?

I meant that the voltage on the RAM does not matter unless you are overclocking the RAM.
