- Opteron 165 motherboard?

I'm putting together a system with an Opteron 165 dual-core processor.
I know about the Asus boards, but that's about all I know.
I will be using this to edit video and code & burn DVDs occasionally.
Any opinions on what a good value would be? I'd rather not have to go
high-end if I can avoid it.
I'd like a serial port, parallel port, USB, and Firewire, but I can
always pick up a PCI card if necessary. Onboard graphics are fine--I
have an old PCI video card right now and hardly use its potential.
Re: Opteron 165 motherboard?
I just built a friend a system using an Asus A8N-E and I'd definetly
recommend it. The set up was flawless, everything works first try,
lots of extra slots, PCI-e X16, X4, 2 X1's and old PCI. If you don't
need SLI, this board is great, of all of my systems I've built for
customers, I've always used the A8N-E, works awesome. No onboard
video, but that old PCI video card will work fine.
