I second that. I have lots of experience with athlon-based motherboards
at notam for audio use, and via has allways been a safe chipset. I would
also like to recommend asus, as they have allways been able to support
more than 10m long mouse/keyboard cables. Very few motherboards seems
to do that, so I guess asus is better designed.
