I try to find another PQI like mine, but I couldn't. It's not a problem to sell it (thats why I'm asking this things). Maybe in the future i will buy another 2 sticks of the same kingston, because I'm useing some CAD programs which using a lot of ram, but for now 4 GB is good for me

SS or Single Sided is Low Density ram and more of a chance of being compatible with the mobo if it is not on the memory QVL list .

DS or Double Sided is High Density ram and the less of a chance of being compatible with the mobo if it is not on the memory QVL list.

Performs the same.

as far as i am aware. on amd boards, u should run it in the colour furthest from the socket. so 2 in the red for better performace

With you using CAD. That is the best way to go.

You can run 4 sticks of memory on AMD. OP was basicly asking about which color slots was a dual channel set and he was asking about mix matching memory set.

First of all, don't buy the Kingston generics. Overpriced 800 CL6 = garbage.
Second of all, matching coloured slots. That is all. If you put in 3 DIMMs (assuming 2 Kingstons and 1 PQI) it will run in improvised single channel (interleaved, will appear as dual channel but this is not so). Dual channel can make a big difference over single channel.

ok I know that the kingston is crap, but from the QVL only this is available in my country (from the 800MHz one)

Unless you're on the Crosshair IV Formula or another very QVL-specific/picky board, I really don't find a need to focus on the QVL (at least, for personal/not client builds) - the reason being that the QVL often misses out on a LOT of memory kits out there. If you can get anything with 800 CL5 (most likely there will be such a choice out there for cheaper) definitely go with that over anything.

Ok I can see that all VQL memory is runing at 1.8V, I try to find some, but how I can know if it works (good) on my MB?

Example: I found for $99 Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5C G 4GB Kit 800MHz C5 DDR2 Desktop Memory, Latency 5 - 5 - 5 - 18

I can find some 1066MHz kits too (not in the vendor list). What is better for my system 800MHz or 1066MHz, and *** that mean: "Due to AMD AM3/ AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module of DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel."???

I'm pretty sure 1.8+V memory will work just fine on your mobo. Most mobos from manufacturers that sell retail have boards that aren't picky on RAM (expect some examples). The Corsair choice would be good.

The limitation thing is about running DDR2-1066 multiplier with 4 DIMMs; the 1066Mhz x5.33 multiplier is locked out, but you can still do it safely by upping the ref. clock, even on a C2 revision processor. Only with DDR3 you start having issues depending no the IMC revision. Even then, you'll only be running 2 DIMMs. You'll be just fine. I have a C2 Athlon II x4 630 running two DIMMs of Dominator 1066 CL5 memory at 2V [slightly below rated voltage] with no issue whatsoever.
