Is ICH7 southbridge the best bet for OSX86?

Hello everyone,


I keep having issues with my current Asus P5k-VM motherboard, which has an ICH9 southbridge. AHCI limited to 2 sata ports, keeps crashing while unpacking big files and with Eyetv. From what I read around here the ICH9 is to blame and is not very well suited to use with osx.


So my question is, which is the best to go for?


Am I right in thinking ICH9R is better supported and I should stay clear from ICH8 and standard ICH9?

Is there a reason to prefer ICH9R over ICH7?


Thanks in advance, guys!


(I'm using Leopard, btw)
