Question Linux compatible AMD64 motherboard.


Hi y'all...

I'm concidering to build an AMD64 computer, and I'd like to know what Linux compatible motherboards there are.

Been looking at the Asus K8V Deluxe, it has got Linux drivers listed in its drivers section.

Feedback will be greatly appreciated


Thnx,
/XeZa

If you use mainly business or internet applications, I suggest getting the 754 socket motherboard.

If you are a gamer, graphic artist, sound editor, video editor. I suggest getting a 940 socket motherboard.

AMD and VIA chipsets support LINUX. I don't know if Nvidia supports LINUX for nforce3 and nforce3 pro chipsets.

I suggest waiting until next year. Motherboards next year may be better for the AMD 64. Also they may have 64 bit PCI slots.

Hi.

Thnx for your answer... Yes, to wait, as you said, is the way to go now that I think of it. Better support and lower prices too is a win win situtation


Thnx,
