I didn't look too far into it at the moment but I am pretty sure you are overpaying for ram. albeit it good ram you could go cheaper or get 8gb of the same speed ram for around the same price. What do you intend to do with your computer?

4gb will most certainly run any game you need it to but having 8gb will assure you aren't pushing your ram to it's limit which I found I was doing with BF3 up and other programs running.

also if you could find a way to fit an i5-2310 into your rig, I would HIGHLY suggest that. although your mobo will clock your ram lower :'(
