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