Same here. Youre probably best off going for a well-known brand (ASUS,
A-Bit etc.) as its more likly that  kernel developer has on somewhere and
has fixed any problems :)

Last itme I looked (at least a year ago) the NFocrce chipset wasn't well
supported, but that has probably changed by now.

If you google for "<model number of motherboard> linux" you will be able
to see quite quickly how many people have problems with it. In general
though I just buy a well layed out board (I've lost too much knuckle skin
over the years) from a known manufacturer and hope. I've never had a board
that was unstable in linux, where it wasn't down to a hardware problem.
