Why? The ram I found was the same price though the motherboard was slightly more expensive. I do plan on getting i7 when the price comes down too. Does DDR2 perform better? I had assumed newest gen. + same price = good deal
i7 boards are rated for 1.5-1.65v DDR3 ram. There is a reason why that ram has a $50 rebate(which probably won't be honored).
Okay, yeah, there's no need to get ddr3 yet, I keep hearing the same thing so I'll take your word for it. But besides that, how can you tell what voltage your ram has to be? I don't see anything on the motherboard that specifies it.
Also, what does it mean when it says
Memory Standard: DDR2 1200(O.C) / 1066
Does that mean it uses 1066 ram that can be OCd to 1200 or it uses 1066 unless you O.C then you'll need 1200?
