I'm using an Asus A8N-SLI Premium with my Opteron 180 and love it. Haven't
had any problems with any of the nvidia chipset features, it's stable (30+
days uptime running foldingathome 24/7 on both cores), and, if you only run
one PCI-E graphics card, you'll have an x8 PCI-E slot for
[you-fill-in-the-blank]. Sound is not audiophile-quality but is definitely
more than decent. There are two GigE ports [one nvidia and one Marvell (uses
the SKGE driver)]. There are only 3 PCI slots, however, but you could easily
make up the difference with the extra x8 and x4 PCI-E slots and adaptors.
