Seeking AMD Motherboard Recommendations

Postby MystDragon » Thu Aug 09, 2012 12:52 pm

I have an AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2GHz CPU in an ASUS M5A88-V EVO AM3+ motherboard that was completely not capable of running any variant of linux comfortably. The motherboard finally died, though the CPU is still in good condition. Can anyone recommend a good linux compatible motherboard for this CPU that will not take a huge investment in time and tweaking to get it running smoothly?
I would like to run the latest mint. If you have comment, please leave one here or if you desire, email me at [email removed].

Thanks Folks.

You probably need to identify the cpu to see what motherboards are compatible.
