Don't think so the internal graphics is not the right one. If it is an asus board it might be the http://reviews.cnet.com/motherboards/asus-m5a78l-m-lx/4507-3049_7-34743475.html?tag=mncol;subnav

That board have the correct graphics onboard. also sata 300.

Hi,

the fully supported is the ASUS one.

ASROCK is used in AresOne XL in order to get the onboard Networkchip to working with AROS... so in other words it isn't fully supported (yet).

Minimum 40$ each sold AresOne XL will go into the Bounty.. well I am still not sure if it will be a bounty or a paid order job.. (whatever next week i need to decide) : )

Vesalia gives a damn good price. And in this good price is already a AROS fee included. So if you buy one fromt the free market please donate 20€ to a bounty ; )

I Have ordered the 2011 kit now with an 3.4 dual core option.
So I guess it have the Asus motherboard then.

verry good price and some extra software included also.

And even if I have done some donations in the past it's always good to know that some of the profit goes to the development of aros.

So I'm planning to have some fun with the machine when it arrives here.

Did you order additionally the Geforce card?
This enables 3D acceleration. The 8400GS is working very well.
If you didn't order it you can get one cheap on the net.

PS: The ASUS board supports up to 6core phenom.. but regarding AROS which supports only one core it would not bring much better performance.

I have an old gf8400gs 256 in my drawer that I'm going to try out.
Need to find an wireless solution that works thou, since I'm living in the countryside and have a problem with lightning at the phone wireres. (lost many modem/routers/computers that way b4 I turn wireless).

I got a delivery notice from vesalia so my ares is on the go now guess it will show up at the beginning of next week.Not to faar between Germany and Sweden and the mail is usually great between our countries.

All you need is a supported NIC and any wireless bridge.

Since I don't like threads with no final answer I post the correct board number here. I bought an Ares One 2011 pack and the motherboard was Asus M4A78LT-M

I also have 2 Graphics cards home that works nicely.

Geforce 8800GTS and 8400GS
