I was looking around to get an idea of what i might want to put in my pc when i build it and i started looking at ram. I was looking and there is like eight or so different voltages that it comes in.

How am i suppposed to know what voltage to get?

When i was looking at motherboards it did not specify and particular voltage. The processors made no specification either.

What determines what voltage ram i should get?

here is a link to some of teh stuff i was looking at.

processor

motherboard

Thanks for any and all help!

Nothing, the motherboard is compatible with all the voltages (as long as the memory is DDR2) except the ones you find on the most rare extreme overclocking memory, and even that memory can run a the voltages the motherboard supports.

Instead of bothering trying to get all the specs to match up just use a memory configurator. You can find them on most memory manufacturers homepages. Here is Corsair's memory configurator.
