	Unfortunately you are almost totally alone in this assessment.
Everyone from the original amd64 porter on down has basically said, "stay
away" from nforce3 based motherboards.  A quick search in the archive will
give you more than enough technical reasons as well as a litany of
complaints and frustration at forcing the nforce3 boards to work in spite
of the many good reasons why they shouldn't.

This is in no way disinformation.  Sorry, DES, if I didn't know better, I'd
think you were trying to cover up for some poor purchasing choices,

Anyone interested should dig through the archives and find the past
discussions as well as the previously maintained list of motherboards and
users' experiences with them.  I'd exstimate that you'd be hard-pressed to
find someone who has an nforce3-based board and would recommend them to
anyone else (unless they use windows...)
