Advice for Mobo/CPU Upgrade Needed
I have been running on a 32-bit system for a long time and I am looking for a 64-bit upgrade. Currently, I am looking at several motherboard/CPU solutions and I am not sure which one to buy. Any help with reviews or comments is appreciated.
The motherboards I've chosen are such that have both PCIe and AGP because currently I am not looking to upgrade a video card too.
ASRock 939 Dual-SATA2 (I've heard that there are some problems with the internal NIC detection in Linux, does not really matter since I have a PCI NIC)
Biostar TFORCE4 U (w/ XGP slot)
Biostar NF4ST-A9 (w/ XGP slot)
Has anyone used them? Pros? Cons? Do you think it would be a problem running SuSE 10 on those? ASRock has a ULi chipset and I haven't installed any Linux on a mobo with such a chipset. Any problems?
