    Default Which motherboard for AMD's Phenom II X4 955 BE and 1 GB ATI Radeon 4850X2 PCIE

    Hi Gurus,

    I am planning to buy a system( and run Linux) of following specs:
    4 GB DDR3 RAM
    AMD's Phenom II X4 955 BE
    1 GB ATI Radeon 4850X2 PCIE

    I planning to use above machine for:
    * For GPGPU computation, OpenCL
    * Primarily not for games -- though my nephews/nieces play ocassionally
    * Heavy numeric processing & related scientific calculations -- either with OpenCL (or with CUDA if I buy nVidia GPGPU card)

    I want your valuable help in selecting a suitable motherboard(s)/GPGPU-card which has support for full resolution(as supported by card in windows), network card and sound support for a reasonable price.

    At present, I am planning to use ATI based GPGPU cards -- so OpenCL. I do not have any objection for using nVidia cards -- if they offer similar TeraFlops for the same price as ' AMD's Phenom II X4 955 BE'. If I get nVidia card, I could put my hands on CUDA, OpenCL. Also let me know, how the nVidia/AMD-Radeon Drivers/Libraries fare for GPGPU computations.

    Any ideas/improvements are welcome.

    thanks in advance
