i do have a gigabyte mainboard right now but to read this about gigabyte makes me sad--
maybe i really buy supermicro or tyan next time.
i do have a Tyan mainboard in the past but the nvidia nfoce 3600 pro makes many trouble with the graphic driver and the bios do have tons of bugs like the 128gb first boot pardition bug if you have a pardition greater than 128gb it fails to start grub. also the bios do have a bug that force me to use ext3 or raiserfs it does not start with ext4...
but maybe the modern mainboards with amd chipset are much better than that.
