I'm interested in buying a mainboard for my PC, and I want ot migrate towards AMD64. Can you recomend me a MB that works fine with Linux (MDK10.1)? And I mean here no compatibility issues and other things like that.
Please tell me your opinion about the boards that you have or you have tested.
sorry but i do not have the time to do a search on the whole forum for an AMD64 MB question.
If they are not good then please give me a reason, not just the fact that there are no questions on the forum.
MSI K8T Neo works great though it has 8X AGP, no PCI-EXPRESS and the onboard audio doesnt work too well.
Audio does work only in stereo, but the built in 5.1 surround is worthless.
It is a 754 pin board so only the AMD64s up to the 3400+ will fit, the new faster ones are all on either the 939 or 940 pin arch.
Well really, I'd say give it 6 monthCause even thr board recommended just works, not, well, it just, kinda hangs in there. Let linux catch up with 64 bit before ya try it. Otherwise you'll just be running a "kinda sorta works at least in 32 bit mode" on yoru 64 bit system.
Yes but still the AMD64 2800+ is a lot more powerful than my Athlon XP 1700+ on KT400 and anyway that is the future...and until I can unleash the 64 bit power of the system it can still work better than my actual system.
Anyway thanks for the tip....I think in about 1-2 months I will buy a board and I don't have the money to keep changing my MB so I'll buy smth for the future.
