Re: which motherboard for a debian server?

Depends on how reliable the server should be. I would always prefer an AMD 
chipset over nVidia when it comes to reliability. Even if you loose a bit of 
performance. For socket 939 this will be a problem of course (any AMD 8000 
boards available?). Tyan usually is a decent choice - we have several 
dual-S940 AMD8000 based 1U-barebones running under high load without 
Why don't you just buy another A8V? Ok, once failed, nerver again perheaps ;)

The Tyan NF4 board should work though sometimes there are problems with 
spanking new ethernet controllers (new revs), so I don't know for sure. You 
might need a kernel from unstable or backports.org.

Make sure there's enough air flowing over the passive heatsink on the chipset. 
SLI is not needed for a server of course ...

helped a bit?
