Keep in mind that most Athlon motherboards have VIA chipsets, and
there are currently some *nasty* bugs in the VIA chipsets.  These
aren't just Linux problems either.

As much as I hate it, I've stuck with Intel for a while now for this
reason (and the lack of Athlon SMP, which is now no longer a problem).
