So what's the most perfect & original Intel Desktop Board for OSx86 - PLZ HELP!

Intension: Just want to use a Intel based machine to use it for the latest Version of Logic 7 and a Presonus Firewire-Wire Interface for producing music.


What's the latest & newest testet mainboard from Intel, which runs perfect? Want to use 1066 RAMs, need some USB, at least 1-2 Firewire-Interfaces. Will run a SATA2 HDD of Seagate with 16MB Cache... Machine with 4GB RAM and a suitable DVD-Burner (maybe with Lightscribe)...


Is it possible to use a 975 chipset for OSx86? Or do I have to use a 965?


Want to use a ATI 1x00 PCIE Adapter for dualscreen. Do not need a onboad VGA-adapter.


Please do not discuss which one does NOT run. Just want to hear from them of you, which have one running a original Intel Desktop Board with the latest Version of OSx86.


Thanks for your answers.
