Most brands have a reputation. Select one
whose reputation is "good". ;-)
I have FreeBSD running on several mobos
--- recently, builds have been FreeBSD 5.x
on MSI and Shuttle (AK32V, IIRC).
A good, not too long read on the subject
(that you may have already seen) is at:

That's up to you. It's not for me --- and
most of our CPU's are AMD as well. But
they wouldn't be the biggest if they made
shoddy hardware (or would they...?)
Maybe I'm a "cheapo" ... I certainly love
the cost of this OS...as well as lots of other
stuff about it; I don't tend to drop more cash
just for a name, though. YMMV, of course,
and there are plenty of other opinions; I
hope some of them will be heard here and
be helpful to you.
