    I just bought a set of Patriot (2x2gb) DDR2 800 Mhz ram on sale at tiger direct and i'm gonna get a new mobo too. The problem is that it says that it uses 2.1 volts for the ram... Do you have any good suggestions for a motherboard that supports 2.1 or so.... what's like the best budget am2+ board that supports it?

    thanks... the foxconn one looks pretty good since i'm gonna oc my processor anyway. one question though, does the ram voltage make that much of a difference?

    its not the best but its just a regular X2 7750 be... maybe i can get it to OC well... it runs a bit warmer than duo cores i admit though.

    the jetway hummer board is also a good buy from all reports i have see on various forums, its close to the same price retail, openbox at the egg its like 75bucks, I been eyeing it, the chipset coolings kickass, the boards built for clocking....
