Asus A8V Deluxe.  On board audio, ethernet (and pretty much everything 
else) work fine, but the usual advice is that add-on audio cards are 
usually much better than on-board ones.  Depends what the audio is for, 
I guess.

You won't find motherboard compatibility listed, because it's pretty 
much impossible.  However, find the chip sets on the motherboard and use 
google.  Always worked for me.
