Asus K8V-X SE - socket 754.  I don't know if I got a defective one, but 
it's been a problem.  The network fails periodically, the USB is flaky, 
and apparently the AGP bus is hosed.  I updated the BIOS but the 
problems persisted.

FOXCONN K8S755A-6ELRS SiS755 754

There is a similar one (AFAICT identical one) for $3 more with a 
slightly different part number.

I'll post the Socket A mobo later today if I get a chance; it's a 
no-name cheapie but it works amazingly well.
