Talking Buying more ram?

Hi, I want to upgrade to 2 gigs of RAM, I have 1 gig right now and it I'd know where I could buy two 1 gig sticks of PC3200 ram as a set for 140-150$?
Im not sure how to tell how many pins I have (I think I have 184) and im not sure about the DDR or what it is but here are the ones I am looking at and I'd like your guys input and maybe suggestions as to what would be better for the price? Thanks

Centon 2048MB PC3200 Dual Channel DDR 400MHz Memory (2 x 1024MB) 2GBDUALPC3200 at TigerDirect.com
Newegg.com - CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - Patriot Signature 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) System Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - A-DATA Vitesta 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

This is going to be an upgrade mainly for gaming if that helps you help me at all

I had a pair of these
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
when I was running DDR and was quite satisfied. Also overclocked to 240mhz for me
