Default Re: which ram is good?

Generally the motherboard will set the voltage according to the SPD on the memory module. But if it doesn't, it's easy enough to enter the BIOS and set the correct values.

Since you'll be doing some overclocking, I would suggest the CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800. It's good stuff and can handle overclocking well.

do most get their money back? or do they get ripped off?

I haven't heard of any problems with Corsair rebates. They just take a while to arrive as all rebates tend to do.

If you have the money and don't mind the wait for the rebate, grab them from Microcenter.

I've had my set of Corsair XMS2's at DDR2-950 (475 FSB) before, I would get them.

If you go the rebate route you're only paying twenty dollars for them. I'd go that route.
