    Motherboard recommendations?


    I'm looking for a good motherboard with an AM2 socket, that supports RAID0+1 (3.0Gb/s SATA drives) and 4->8GB of DDR2 800MHz memory, and (obviously) has no compatibility problems with linux. I'm not a gamer, so I dont need room for dual graphics cards, or anything extreme like that!

    I've found the sheer selection of boards out there a little overwhelming, and haven't found it easy to get good info on linux compatibility on the boards that do interest me.

    Does anyone have any recommendations??

    I don't know from experience, but I've heard that VIA chipsets are very Linux-friendly.

    Thanks Zelmo,
    I was thinking of going with this one -- whatcha think?. It has a Nvidia nForce 590 SLI chipset -- does anyone know anything good or bad about that? What can I expect in terms of (in)compatibility with linux?
