i'm wanna build my own PC, and i'm thinking on buying one of those motherboard. I'm not an overclocker, sometimes i play games (so SLI would be something nice, but its not necessery).
could anyone give me an advice about those mobos?
i'm interested about soundcards, ethernet cards, acpi support (changing frequency of processor), cooperation with lm_sensors, possibility to adjust fans' speed or through OS, or from Bios directly etc.
yes, i know that- i'd like to know how those 2 mobos cooperate with linux- i.e. are all compoments (mostly- ehternet and sound) work fine under linux, does they requare a closed-source bineries/firmware or they work on free drivers etc.
and, on the other hand- how effective is SLI under linux? is it supported (by nvidias drivers) in the same degree as under windows?
