Okay, I'm making a new system (planning on ordering tomorrow) and I have run into a bump in the road. I was looking at the ASUS P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi, but my friend suggested that i get a board with the P35 chipset. So my dilemma is, what is a fairly good P35 board, that is not overly expensive, preferably has Wi-Fi, and is DEFINATELY compatible with Linux? Thanks in advance.

you can get a pci-e or pci wi-fi card and the ASUS P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi runs the wi-fi over the usb bus with has more cpu over head.

Well, all I really meant is, is there ANY nice P35 MoBo's compatible with Linux?

I would have thought the next logical step would be to goto either an ASUS P5K-E wifi or P5K-Deluxe Wifi. I recently bought a P5K-E Wifi to go with a Q6600 and it works a dream. The is also the possiblity of going to DDR3 with the P5K3 series.

So the ASUS P5K-e/Wi-Fi will work with Linux? That is what i was thinking of going with but wasn't sure if it was compatible.
