I have had very good luck with the Intel Lancewood mobo... L440GX+, we deck
them out regualrly with 2 GB RAM, integrated  SCSI, Graphics, and NIC.
Great dual CPU board for a cluster.... to quote Joel, "proven technology..."

| we use supermicro p6dgu (440gx u2w scsi) and p6dge (440gx no scsi) with 2
| gb of ram fairly regularly (pc100 cas-2 registered ecc)...
| the 440gx boards are now fairly old-school but proven technology.
| we've recently purchased a number of msi 694d-ar boards with the via 694x
| chipset... They should support 2GB of ecc dimms on a 133mhz fsb but we
| haven't used them with more then 512MB (2x 256mb) so ymmv.
