Good to go except that you should note your RAM will run at 1333 MHz unless you use an Ivy Bridge CPU. I would also opt for 1x4 GB of RAM instead of 2x2GB because not many people use that these days, and it would make upgrading to say, an i5-2400 easier, because you will be capped at 8 GB RAM if you use 2 GB sticks instead.

So can I just use 1 x 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333?

Would 1 stick of RAM work?
