is the MCP78S series supported? I thought this was giving users issues with OSx86... but, I've been wrong before.

[edit] also, how are you planning on utilizing the 8 Channel Audio? where have you found support for this?

the audio is alc883 with mini optical toslink through 3.5mm jack like on laptops. Will have to double check on the 78s status but i figured the graphics would get qe/ci and worst case for hdd is usb

i was referring to the 8Channel Audio.. I know it uses the 883 but will you get full support?

Im thinking how cool it would be to have a hand full of these as a cluster to use as a render farm for fcp. Im having delusions of grandeur.
