hmmm, motherboards themselves are usually not problems, especially if dealing with chipsets

no matter which you choose, you are either likely to do a kernel recompile, or have modules ready to be used at your disposal

the nforce2 seems pretty well supported (feature-wise) though i do see a lot of threads at LQ for help with them... kt880 chipset itself doesn't look bad, and it really may depend on the manufacturer that determines whether or not you should take it

sorry i'm ambiguous... i don't really want to make a firm decision with something I haven't tried myself
