    The usual problem board is one that has a video hardware not well 
supported by Ubuntu. For example I had trouble with nVidia hardware but 
Ubuntu now has fixed it. I have a new Intel on my laptop and had to load 
8.10 because it has the newer drivers needed.

    What I would do Alex is buy the motherboard you like for other 
reasons like Bios or speed and order one. Work with it and get Ubuntu 
working like you want it. Then when successful order the rest knowing 
how to do it :-)
