you might have a point there. I think the DDR3 kits for i7 use much lower voltage than regular DDR3, so putting an i& kit into an AM3 motherboard may cause some issuse with overvoltage on the ram.

PS> The Asus board suggested earlier also uses integrated graphics... You can probably get a full size ATX board using the 790X/790FX chipset for around the same price with more expansion abilities.
