I'm buying parts for a computer and want to make sure that the core components are as freebsd friendly as possible. So far, I've decided on a core 2 quad q6600 and I'm choosing the motherboard now.

Me2 (unless I wait for a newer generation of CPUs).

However it seems many of the popular motherboards have Realtek ALC888 as built-in audio and Realtek 8111B as built-in LAN.
I read at:

http://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/CURRENT/hardware/i386/article.html

that the sound should work but I couldn't find any info on the LAN.
Does anyone on the list have any experience with it?

By the way, I'm going to run FreeBSD 7.

I also want a cheap PCI/e NIC that works well with drivers back to
FreeBSD-4 like my plain PCI bge and em NICs do.  I doubt that any
popular motherboard will have anything better than a cheap PCI/e NIC.
