    Registered memory is slower, and you don't need it unless your motherboard specifically asks for it. Read the motherboard manual (you can download the manual from the link you posted). Some older motherboards required registered memory if you wanted to install 1GB or more.

    doesn't have to be a factory matched pair of memory to run in dual channel. however there are a couple of chip manufactures that their memory isn't able to run in dual channel mode. If you stick with the bigger names like Kingston, Corsair, Geil, Mushkin, OCZ you will be fine with buying just 2 stick of the same speed and model.
