Soyo d6iba. I've run it with one cpu for under a month. However, linux
spurted out weird messages about processor #255 being detected, heh.

this soyo mb has onboard scsi. In my opinion, it's far cheaper to purchase
onboard scsi than a pci scsi card. But if price isn't a concern and you
want ultimate performance with multiple scsi harddrives, consider the
high-end scsi cards. I'm happy with 13mb/sec throughput with my uw hd.
