I was not suggesting that you upgrade. I was just mentioning what card I have. 
FWIW, I didn't check the linux compatibility of the mobo before buying it 
because most of the time it works.

Does everything work? No. I still have problem with video. I am running a vesa 
framebuffer X here. The native card is being investigated(
VIA Technologies, Inc. S3 Unichrome Pro VGA Adapter) is what I found out but 
vesa is sufficient in performance for regular desktop at 16 bits. Only GL 
things are slow.
