Compatible, yes; optimal, no. You want to get a pair of RAM sticks, not just one, that operates on 1.5V. You'll get dual-channel mode, and a lot less stress on components designed for the JEDEC standard voltage.
Second, do not buy a Coolermaster PSU; they're [near] junk. Here are some sample links:

If you have no plans to add a discrete graphics card later, one of the inexpensive Seasonic 300W-350W PSUs would be a much better choice. If you will add a graphics card later, 500W is a better size; Seasonic (or a brand actually made by Seasonic, like XFX), Antec, FSP, or Enermax/LEPA would be better choices.

Yeah I definitely agree about the power supply. I wouldn't buy such a cheap case either. It's most likely very poor build quality and will lead to falling apart on you.
