SubjectRe: What Athlon chipset is most stable in Linux?
We've tried a number of boards for our application servers and the only UP 
AMD DDR board I trust right now is the Gigabyte GA-7DX. They are rock

Other AMD 761 boards may work, but I've made too many late night trips to
the colo to stray from what I know works. DDR support seems to be the
breaking point on most boards.
