Your not supposed to read newegg reviews anyways, or any reviews on the seller page. As those people are, well, "retarded".

Use review websites and forums to find out about products.

Yes, but it won't matter since you won't be doing any overclocking on a mATX board with onboard video.

So long as you use the correct form of memory, as in DDR1, DDR2 or DDR3, it should be fine.

I couldn't even find this motherboard's info on GIGABYTE's website?

GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-G33M-S2L

It does seem like a good motherboard.

For memory, how does this look: Newegg.com - A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

I'm thinking about ditching the Corsair for this one since I won't be gaming.

So to summarise what I am considering buying:

Processor: Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

Motherboard: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-G33M-S2L LGA 775 Intel G33 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Memory: Newegg.com - A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Good build?

However, should I go for the 1.9v corsair or the 1.8v A-DATA?

Or should I go for the higher voltage: Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Do not double, triple or otherwise post to your own reply...
Edit them.

I will not merge them again, they will be deleted instead.

Since you not gaming, cheap value RAM will do fine. So any of the ones you linked will be fine.
