Asus AMD AM3 motherboard

Hi all,

I am contemplating building a new Linux box with an Asus AMD AM3 motherboard. Does anybody have experience doing this? I am mainly concerned with compatibility issues.

BTW, any Linux distro would do, not only just Fedora.

Thanks in advance!

I use this AMD AM3 motherboard on Fedora 15 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A785TDV_EVO/
Still works OK.

I've used a few recent Asus and ASRock maotherboards with the Am2/Am3 CPUs and it has gone fine, with or without the onboard graphics. I'm using a £36 ASRock N68-S UCC right now with and AMD 3 ghz dual core and it's very comfortable and not at all expensive.
