Ask me in a week or two :-)

I've had no show-stopper issues with that mobo and FC1. I updated to some 2.6 
kernels, and have been pretty happy with it. I have a few stability issues 
(probably from nvidia binary drivers or X), and updatedb cripples the system 
each night, but on the whole it's been good. I won't be moving to FC2 until 
nvidia release compatible binary drivers (with 4k stacks support).

I would not say that going to amd64 is easy or painless, you have to be 
prepared to spend time compiling and troubleshooting packages that fedora 
doesn't include. Some things (like Jack) I still can't get to work, but I'm 
leaving that 'till I move to a more stable but recent kernel, which in turn 
is waiting for nvidia (!).

Doubt I can help you there. FWIW though, I'm running a GeForce4 Ti 4400. Runs 
UT2004-demo-64bit-linux rather nicely.
