I've got a server based around an A8V Deluxe.  Runs abolutely great, SATA RAID 
and everything.  Postgres flies on it.  Getting Java running in the last 
couple of days was a pain, but that is down to i386 emulation issues.  Not 
had any other problems at all.

I'm so pleased with it I simply won't buy another server that won't run 
FreeBSD/amd64 natively - although currently that does mean it can take longer 
to find a compatible server than to actually install it.
