Mine has been rock solid (Athlon XP 2000, KT400)... Well not quite, I did
have some serious nVidia-related stability problems. The fan on my
GeForce 4 blew up, which made the chip blow up, which made the 
system blow up (well, just crash all the time and print random 
characters/pixels on the screen). Apart from that, no problems with a
AMD+Severn combination.
