Ubuntu Feisty 64-bit

Intel BOXDG965WHMKR LGA 775 Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel BOXDG965WHMKR LGA 775 Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It runs nicely now, with Core 2 Duo E6420, 4GB Kingston RAM, 1680x1050 display with the integrated graphics.

Cons: Needed some tweaks to get my choice of OS to install: Ubuntu Feisty 64-bit. The main one was I had to 'downgrade' to BIOS version 1669, from the Intel website. To get the graphics to display at the correct resolution, I had to install the package 'xserver-xorg-video-intel', which was from the 'universe' repository, and was not the default X11 driver installed.

Overall Review: This board does not have overclocking capabilities - but that is not what I want.

Pros: Cheap, works ok for the stuff I want to listen to. The Mic and headphone passthrough sockets are convenient so I don't have to reach under the desk.

Cons: It picks up some radio station, so if I'm not playing any music or whatever, there are these distant voices in the background. Sometimes it hums a bit, but moving the sub and cables around helped reduce the hum.
