No I don't mean the buy thing. I mean the RAM itself.
My question is buying the Kingston RAM will be compatible with my computer with the memory upgrade information from above.
What would happen if the gold contacts or gold thing on the bottom part the RAM stick is damaged?

I checked on the Kingston website. It does not appear that they make memory that is guaranteed compatible with your desktop PC. Try Crucial or Corsair. Only purchase guarnteed compatible memory modules and replace the originally installed memory with the new module(s).
If you install 4 GB and have a 32 bit operating system then your operating system will recocgnize and use @3.25 GB of the installed memory.
If you somehow manage to break the gold contacts on the bottom of a memory module, then it will stop working and your PC will not boot into Windows.
