Default New build - 1.65v DDR3 compatible with 1.5 mobo? i5 vs Phenom2?

Hey guys.

As the title says, I'm planning on my first build. So I need some advice, I'd be thankful.

Here's the complete build:
Case: HAF 922
PSU: Corsair TX750W
Motherboard: GA-MA790FXT-UD5P
CPU: Phenom II 945 BE
RAM: Corsair 2x2gb DDR3 @ 1600 MHz XMS3
GPU: XFX HD5850
HDD: 500GB Western Digital Caviar SE SATA II (will SATA "II" be compatible?)

The DDR3 memory runs at 1.65v, and the motherboard runs at 1.5v - will they be compatible with eachother?


---


My other question is which one of these should I be getting...

Phenom II 945 @ 3GHz on Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P DDR3
or
i5 750, 2.66GHz on Asrock P55 PRO DDR3
...if I plan to crossfire 5850s in future? And I can't afford a CPU cooler, so I can't overclock too much...

Thanks

Edit: If the memory suggested above doesn't work, does this one work instead? It's 1.5v.

Hey no problem, that's why the members get payed the big bucks for taking the time out of their lives to help random people out around here!

/sarcasm.

Would you like to borrow a "/" for your sarcasm, or are you all set?
