Re: ASUS P5P800 Motherboard support

I went to the local Fry's Electronics and the ASUS seems like a good

Even if I go with a KV7 as you suggested, I still would like to know
if Debian would work on it.
The hit/miss is tough proposition. By the time I spend on CPU+DDR
Mem+MoBo, it is an expensive project.
Well, there you go. Hit and miss. I would like to know too if Debian
works on the KV7, probably, if it worked on the KT7A. And you are right,
it is expensive: ([OT] I find NewEgg on the net cheaper than local
stuff. Depends where local is of course)
AMD xp 2700+ $103 (with fan and heatsink)
KV7 mobo $52.90
1 GHz DDR266 $137.50
Total from NewEgg: $293.40
No guarantee it will float. I would use the HDD's I have, CDRW I have
and external serial modem I have.
I buy a case locally and use the present mobo in it and one of the HDD's
+ use a crossover cable to compare it with running Ruby, because I have
2 17" monitors w. kbds, mice and videocards.
I think that wiki would be a good idea. Just experiences.

Can you point me to a Motherboard Hardware listing that shows which
Motherboard's would work with Debian.
I'd like that myself. That HOWTO is not up to date. I have had an Abit
KT7A mobo for the last 3 years and I am planning a mobo upgrade and will
go with Abit again. Abit is not in that HOWTO.
I stand to be corrected but getting a mobo is a hit and miss
proposition: first you google for problems with Linux, if you don't find
First of all, I would get an Abit KV7 now. For these reasons:
- I want to get a faster processor than the 850MHz Athlon I have now. So
this supports the XP 2700+ of 2.17 GHz, almost 3x faster.
- But I want a minimum of integrated hardware, this only has sound and
lan, which the KT7A did not have.
- I'll have to buy DDR memory, expensive.
- I'll stick with Abit.
Now those are not very exact reasons.
What are your reasons for picking the ASUS P5P800?
I note that it is for an Intel CPU and costs almost twice more than the
KV7. I guess I go with AMD because of the trackrecord.
