I am going to start piecing together components for a PC and would like some expert advice. I have decided to go with a AMD Dual Core processor. I found this mobo on Newegg which seems to be a fairly nice entry level board:

Will I have any problems installing Ubuntu and drivers for the components using this motherboard? Can I use the driver disc that comes with this board? Does anyone have any other better alternatives? I would like to keep the mobo + processor around $100.

I always go with 64-bit dual core AMD processors and keep the CPU/mobo combination at $100. With 4GB of RAM and a nice CPU cooler you can probably stay under $200.

Here is a hardware guide for Ubuntu (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport)
