Motherboard suggestions

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P is also good. IDE has some problems, RAID doesn't work, and shutdown and restart have some issues but other than that, its good bang for the buck and works nicely. If you get this Mobo use social swimmer's excellent DS3P installation guide, PC-EFI instructions included. Only sound requires patching.

 

The Intel Bad Axe 2 only requires a sound patch and works with Leopard and EFI but its overpriced and is based on the old 975 chipset that will not support upcoming processors. The ASUS P5W DH Deluxe is also a good motherboard and requires not much patching but it has the same problem as the Bad Axe 2, its chipset is too old and its overpriced.

 

Gigabyte GA-945GCMX-S2 is also a very good motherboard and only requires a sound patch. The features are minimal but its a very cheap motherboard that has good functionality.

I saw in a thread that it has "100% audio functionality" but I'm not sure if that includes Surround and S/PDIF but maybe...In any case, is surround and S/PDIF critical to you? Most motherboards don't work with S/PDIF and surround is another not-sure thing.
