Windows 7: Help choosing correct RAM stick

Help choosing correct RAM stick

Hello guys. Let me be short, I need to buy one memory stick for my computer. I currently have this one:
Help choosing correct RAM stick-wp_20150701_004.jpg

My motherboard is a Dell 0gdg8y. I'm going crazy searching for a stick that will be compatible and I just can't seem to find one. I'm no expert in computers so I'm reading a lot. I don't mind buying one from a different brand.

1st question: In order for the sticks to work together, they must have the same Frenquency, Latency and the DDR type right ?

2nd question: As the picture show: "PC3-10600U-10-09-A0". The other stick must have the same specifications?

3rd question: I found some perfect sticks with good prices that could work, the only thing is, they are 2Rx8. I was reading and someplaces were saying that I shoudn't use because they wouldn't work together so well, and some other places were saying that I could use with no problem whatsoever. So, can I use them or not? Brazilian forums are way too confusing so I'm asking here.

Thank you for the help!
