Craig,

I have an Asus A7N8X-X (the "-X" series does not have dual-channel memory)
and really like it. I've got an AMD 2500+ with 512MB OCZ Performance DDR400
that works great. The NVidia chipset is really good, solid and stable...
lots of bandwidth. I've tried many Linux distros that work without any
problems (Fedora Core 2, Knoppix 3.4 to name just two). I've heard many
people say that NVidia has the best chipset for AMD systems. If you plan to
use Firewire or Serial-ATA you might want them to give you the A7N8X-Deluxe
board instead which includes those goodies. :-)

I hope that helps!

-Steve.
