I use the K8V SE MB. I have no problems. The sound-chip is a AD1980 from
AnalogDevices 6-chanel S/PDIF out. The sound is bearable - I use my emu10k1
aka Soundblaster live player 1024. SATA is OK - about 70MB/sec. Yukon Gb
ethernet onboard is running in 100 Mb mode - works fine (I have no Gb
ethernet at home). Buy it if You have a good soundcard laying around.
