Ack!!!!  Intel is a horrible idea.  I have an AMD x2 3800 and it is great.
I had a Prescott and it was a nightmare.  If you are not doing hi def then
you'll be OK, but otherwise go AMD.

Wow, it is tough to find serial ports these days!  I have an AMD
A8N-VM.  There is also an A8N-SLI which is larger.  But they only
have a printer port.
