    Smile Top TEN Ubuntu SUPPORTED MOTHERBOARDS

    HI GEEKS, I need your honest and savy opinions.

    Reason:
    I want to build my own box with Ubuntu, but doing it, I will like to know which are the top best ten HIGH END motherboards(or Which brands)are/make the best Ubuntu compatible motherboards that will not have Ubuntu issues.

    1.
    (meaning HIGH ENDS in this case, means core duals, DDII supported, PC-E)

    2.
    Also, I like to know which are the low end motherboards that will support Ubuntu.(in this case, meaning low end boards means P4's boards(supporting under 2.8ghz), AMD boards supporting under 3200 mhz processors, etc, DD1, SDRAM.)

    Please, List your top high ends and your top LOW ends in order. 1,2, 3, 4 ,,,,

    Thank you so much. I am sure you will help me and others as well.

    Don't have anything to add about this yet but I'm going to build a box soon too, so I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread.

    I just build my first computer and I used a Gigabit motherboard. I know Asus is also used quite often. I think you should be more concerned with the right video card... Those typically give people alot of problems.

    I bought a Shuttle SG31G2 bare bones, largely because it uses an Intel chipset and Intel onboard video. I run a Core2Duo E8400. All hardware was properly recognized by Ubuntu. I run Compiz using the onboard video with no problems. In general, Intel supports Linux so that's something to keep in mind when shopping.

    I'm running on an Itox G4S300-B (with a 2.4ghz P4) that I was given a month or so ago. Ubuntu detected everything fine (even when I just swapped motherboards from an older AMD-based board), and I've had no problems.

    Well, I'm having some trouble getting more than one app to output audio, but I'm pretty sure that's just an ALSA problem, not hardware recognition.
