I'm building a PC for a dedicated system that needs 4 PCI slots. I've
narrowed the search down to the giga-byte ga-m56s-s3 or the ga-m52s-
s3p. They are based on the nforce 530 or 560 chip set. Graphic speed
is of no concern. Any relevant comments would be appreciated. I'd run
opensuse 10 or 11 in raid 1 (mirror).

Note it has been my experience on an older PC that opensuse 10.3 would
not run out of the box on raid0+1, though suse 10.2 did. I sure hope
that is fixed in opensuse 11.
