Well, i have an ati chipset mobo (RS480) for my amd64 939 3000 and
it's horrible. Totally unreliable piece of crap, this seems to be the
same with any os. They recommend using low performance ram to increase
stability... so steer as far away from ati as physically possible. It
might be an issue with airflow, but as the temp monitoring doesn't
work at all under linux i can't really tell.

I am also looking for another mobo of the crashing much less type.
Does anyone have a recommendation i.e model number of a known working
well for low latency board? What do people on here with amd64 use?
Asus nvidia based boards are easy to get here, though other brands
seem less common. Need pci-e and sata.
