That's the main reason why I chose a nForce2 chip set. From what I'd
read on the various boards, the nForce chip sets have the best support
amongst the various on-board peripheral chip sets.

Doing some research never hurts. I think I made good choices on all my
components except the tuner card (Twinhan VP took a lot of work to get
going the first time and doesn't have the best tuner) and the case
(Cooler master Cavalier looks good if you're into retro, but it's noisy
and the blue power LED is too bright for a living room).
