I'm thinking of building a *very* similar system, but I have a question:

Is that RAM compatible with that Motherboard?

Motherboard says:
Notice: Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operation with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets.

... and that Ram is 1.9V.

Help ease my confusion, please!

good question.
izz jess i would check that out.
i know the corsair xms2 pc6400c4 will run at 1.8v, cos i've done it.
but it wont run at 4-4-4-12 with that voltage (at least not stable).
it'll do 5-5-5-18 2T no problem (but then, if you do that...what's the point of having c4 ram, knowwhatimean?)

lol sorry dude, you probably outta take the advice of one of the intel fellas in that case.
my suggestion is to get the cheapest ddr2800. i dont think you will need anything else.
good luck!
