    Buying a new motherboard


    I'm thinking of buying this motherboard:
    Soyo KT600 Dragon Plus v2.0
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...M-KT600-XP2900

    Does anyone have any experince using this with Linux? From what I've read, it works great. But I did read one nasty review that sort of turned me off. \

    Any other suggestions? I want an AMD, not a Pentium.

    I have a couple of Soyo boards, and while they are not the same model, they are similar. I've had no problems with them on Linux, but I don't ever run XWindows, sound or USB on my boxes.

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    Say no to Soyo

    Avoid Soyo. They are not very good boards. Plenty of QC problems. They also suck to deal with as a company.

    Been there, done that.

    if you are having second thoughts on that mobo. I know that MSI and ASUS make killer boards. I use an MSI with an AMD Athlon XP 2200 and everything on the board was picked up and configured on the first install.

    Same here...MSI, ASUS and Abit are great.

    The big thing is to make sure that you stay away from SiS chipsets...I've heard many bad tales reguarding their performance, stability and quality.
