Is this the same RAM?

ok so my system has been locking up due to different RAM. 2 of my RAM are Corsair CORSAIR 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model VS1GB400C3, and the 3rd one is Corsair XMS CMX1024-3200C2

Now I want to buy another 2 of Corsair XMS that would match mine, but no one got them but ebay.

this is the one they got on ebay:

would these RAM sticks go together perfectly? because the ebay one got a different volume # (mine is 1.2 and the platinum stick on ebay is 2.1) and Model # but it seems like it's the same as mine it's just that way because of platinum version I think after I googled it.

They also got another 2 sticks on ebay. it's $20 more, same exact model, only version 3.1. does that make any sort of difference?

  2. i cant. there are no models selling anywhere. everything is the same, the voltage, the models, only the ebay one is platinum, and mine is black, and versions are different.
