I'm throwing together a mid-level desktop for general use and am about to settle for a ASRock G31M-VS motherboard (will have 4 GB, NV 8800 GTX, E5200 2x2.50GHz TRAY 2MB, two 250 GB disks). It will mainly run Windows 7 for some gaming/MM apps, but like with all my machines, Linux is the inevitable fate. Are there any glaring issues with this board and Ubuntu/Linux?
I've only migrated from windows today so i have no idea what i'm doing at all but when i first booted up Ubuntu 12.04 everything worked perfectly.
However as soon as i installed the updates i haven't been able to keep a wireless connection.
