The current issue of c't magazine (German) has a less than favourable 
review on that board. The chipset fan is apparently rather noisy, and 
there are stability problems with 3D and MPEG acceleration. Linux does 
run, they don't specifically mention stability of the graphics chip on 
Linux, however. Furthermore, although it's an AM2+ board, you can't run 
it with any of the currently available Phenom chips, as it's only 
specified for up to 65W.
