I have two boards I'm looking at and would like some opinions on which one to choose. The two boards are:
ASUS P5N-E SLI
MSI P6N SLI Platinum
I have seen good reviews on both but I have heard both are picky on the ram you use. The ram I'm looking at buying is CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail. Will that ram work in both boards? I read MSI board only wants ram thats 1.8v and that ram is 1.9v but not sure if that is true or if I just need to update the bios for the ram to work with MSI.
What are your opinions?

MSI but look at the Gigabyte 650i DS4.
Tbh unless you need SLI or 2 IDE channels (4 devices) get a P35 instead.
