So I am considering boards with the Intel G965 chipset but not sure if is supported yet? > Can someone make a recommedation as far as best chipset for this scenario? thx > -- John P35 with ICH9R works OK (the R in ICH9R is the important bit). The RAID capable chipsets also support AHCI mode and the native CentOS kernel driver for AHCI works very well. *Some* non-R ICH9 based boards also have the AHCI mode present in the BIOS but many don't - the chipset does support it but many vendors choose not to implement it in their BIOS so it's a bit of a lottery. Entry level boards with integrated graphics tend to be ICH9, not ICH9R. I don't have any direct experience with other chipsets so am unable to comment on those.
