Is ASUS A8V Deluxe OK for Linux?

I'm planning to buy a ASUS mainboard with the following chipset:

Chipset 	VIA K8T800Pro and VIA VT8237

It's the A8V-Deluxe

Does anyone know if this MB has problems with Linux (or the other way?)

Before I had the P5RD1-Deluxe (Intel CPU) but it was too hot (noisy)
because I needed 550Watts to make it stable. It had the same Soundchip
like A8V-Deluxe (Realtek ALC861) which didn't work because of the ALi
controller. Is this different here? Does the Intel HDA audio driver work
with A8V-Deluxe? Are VIA chipsets in general OK for Linux or do they
suck for some reason?

Does anyone OWN this MB already?

I WANT an Athlon64 3200+! Maybe there is a better MB available?

ANY comment is highly appreciated!

Thanks a lot,
