    Board brand

    these are the main ones that I see on

    the system would be an athlon 64 3000+.

    I'm going with Asus based completely on experience. My asus board has been chugging away happily for 3+ years now without a hitch. I've seen just about every other piece of hardware on the machine hiccup or die, but the mobo has remained reliable. Then again, I have no idea how they'll play with the x86-64 chipset.

    On my personal experience;

    For ease/stability, go with Asus or Intel (of course, no Athlon 64 for Intel...).

    For performance, go with Soyo.

    For features, Gygabit...

    my favorite MB manufacture is Tyan - they may great boards and have excellent Linux support.

    I bought a FIC board, piece of crap, had to pull it out. Replaced it with one from ABIT (KV7), very happy with it ...
