Yes, make sure you get dual channel if so. Example: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...145-499&depa=0

512 should be fine for current games, just make sure it's quality RAM, such as Corsair, Geil, or Mushkin...maybe go 1024 for upcoming games such as Half Life 2, or intense graphics/video design

Yes, it's just that the two combine to equal twice the bandwidth.
