Hi Davide,

Thank you for the suggestions.

I've recently noticed more people recommending ATI and Intel -
specifically of the *nix community - where originally I was hearing more
of a mix of Intel and AMD and mostly NVIDIA... It looks like it's all
pretty close in price (an AMD and Intel (both quads) of similar specs
are only about $5 apart).

I'm guessing either Intel or AMD motherboards will work fine with Linux
and Unix.

However, I am concerned about which GPU will work better.

Thanks again for the input.
