I'm also waiting for my case, so set up the machine (IONITX-A which also has
the external brick) without a case.  I've got 2 sticks of Crucial RAM
(2x1GB) and everything is working great.  So - doesn't need any special

I bought the RAM from Newegg - crucial 1GB 240 - PIN 128x64 DDR2 PC2 - 6400

I'm really impressed with this little board.  It seems really well put
together and finished.
