Better off with these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$44 Mushkin Enhanced 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (same speed as the ones you have)

However are you running a 64bit OS? If not, getting more RAM is pointless (32bit can only use up to 4GB).

Consider buying from MSY - significantly cheaper than PC Case Gear, and a better choice than eBay :) 

MSY sells GSkill and Patriot - both good brands.

It should work, however it will downclock that G.Skill DDR2 1066 RAM to equal the Kingston DDR2 800 you already have (if they are even compatible). Honestly I'd say if they arent too expensive, pick up 2 sets of the 1066 and replace the 800.
