Upgrading my Macbook to 4GB RAM?

I was thinking of upgrading my Macbook's memory from 2GB to 4GB. I have the Macbook from the fall of 2009, with 2.26Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo. Instead of buying the $200 upgrade from Apple, I was hoping for a cheaper price. Would something along the lines of the following work in my Macbook?

This is the Apple upgrade:

And upgrading the RAM is simple enough to do by myself, right? Thanks a lot. If anyone has other suggestions, let me know.

    Thats a good deal from Crucial as well as they sell good RAM and for Apple they are priced higher for OEM reasons. As for Apples policy for RAM installation it doesn't void a warranty and is covered under parts a client or user of an Apple Computer replace.

    Here is where we get RAM from as they cover your RAM as well as buy it back when your done for a decent price. There are other places that cheaper yet stick to rebuttal sites.

    Lots of videos on YouTube for helping you out with installing the RAM
