Linux on these ASUS Moboís?


Iím getting ready to build a new PC and Iím probably going to get one of these two motherboards.

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-644-_-Product

or

ASUS M4A89TD PRO

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-655-_-Product

I donít suppose anyone has one of these and is running Linux on it. If so, any issues?

If not, anyone have any AM3 mobo recommendations?

M4A89GTDPRO/USB3 no problems here. I just looked at the model you named it's similar to mine but not exact. Mine its GTD and the difference is that I have 2 sata connections that are in a different place than tyhe 1's on the TD.

Thanks EDDY1. I ended up going with the GTD as well. It looked like the newer of the two. I'm pretty excited.

I am planning on using the M4A89GTD PRO on my new build with Debian Squeeze. The main difference between that and the M4A89TD PRO seems to be that the GTD has onboard video, the TD does not.
