I spent most of the evening researching the various boards you've all suggested to me. I checked out ASUS, GIGABYTE, ABIT & MSI. I think i might end up going with ASUS for the main machine and will probably purchase a few of the other boards to experiment and play with. Everyone here seems to agree that ASUS is top of the line. I wonder if i'll go with an ASUS board on the server too? Hmmm.
I share in the sentiments of Hygor who mentioned the words i used as being "evil" (pentium & intel). I'm going to stick with AMD but i've noticed most of the server boards i've come across are pentium based. I'll have to do more looking into that though.
The only \"intuitive\" interface is the nipple. After that, it\'s all learned. ;)
