Yes, that's the same mobo. Any dual channel DDR3 RAM up to 1333mhz should work.

Edit: Just saw your edited post, would you like recommendations on that build, because there are a number of changes I would make, the first one being switching to a different socket?

Also, use this format please:

I strongly recommend against your PSU, if you plan on crossfiring in the future you should go with one of these instead, it's far better than that Azza:

August 21, 2009 5:41:27 AM

With both your build and mine, go with 2x2gb.

Edit: Triple channel (3 sticks) is for Core i7 builds btw.
