That helps.  I'm just looking for a basic, reliable mb for business 
desktop use.  It just needs to do a terminal, email, web, spreadsheet, 
and word processor.  The last one I got was a Biostar MCP6P-M2 GeForce 
6150 Socket AM2 and I had a little trouble with the video resolution.  
Ubu 8.10 did not readily recognize the video chip.

I'm cheap.  I usually go for the lowest price, but I would pay a little 
more to avoid such trouble.
