I just bought this board, along with a 7200 Intel CPU and 2 gig of RAM.
Setup was flawless. I installed the latest Ubuntu, which picked up
everything except for the graphics card, but then immediately gave me the
option to install the restricted drivers, which I did, and it rebooted in
1920x1080. Very impressed. Even sound works straight up - something that
I'm still having problems with in Windows.
Now I'm having issues with my DVB-S card (Technisat SkyStar 2) but I had
these problems last time too.
Ended up paying 230 euros for a nice slim media center case, motherboard,
ram, and CPU. Overall very happy so far.
