I also like MSI. Several weeks ago I build a new "economy" server-desktop for 
one of my clients. I started out with an Asus K-8 series and it was so bad I 
ended up returning the board. I went with a MSI K-8T Neo and have had zero 
problems with it. The server is rock solid and everything works as advertised 
with no system tweaks necessary to set it up. I originally set it up for 
AMD64 but went back to I-386 because of lack of desktop support. I would 
recommend them highly for low-end servers. It's happily running 6-STABLE.
