About to order motherboard Asus M4A78LT-M - any known issues?

Howdie, fellow Debianites!

I'm about to order a system with Asus M4A78LT-M (AM3/PCIE/S/R/V1G/H5200, with an AMD Phenom II X4 840, 3,20GHz) and was wondering whether any list member has any experience with this mobo in Debian Squeeze.

In particular:

1. I'm planning to run virtualized Windows XP on it and have seen reports such as http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/5639 about VirtualBox having problems with AMD SVM. Anybody care to confirm/rebut that? Does hardware virtualization work?

2. What's the support for the integrated ATI Radeon 3000 graphics in the stock Squeeze kernel? Can the free driver be used? Is 3D working?

Will be immensely grateful for any first-hand experience. This is important to me -- *cash* is involved ;P
