EP-AD580 XR.

The AD580 XR board supports all current AMD Socket AM2 CPUs including the FX-62 and 6000+. AMD introduced their AM2 platform last year with support for DDR2 memory. The chipset supports HyperTransport with up to 2 GigaTransfers per second with 16bit up and down links.

The RD580 chipset supports up to 16GB of DDR2 800MHz memory. Today, there are few if any 4GB memory modules but they do exist and this board is ready for it. Windows XP 32-bit only supports up to 4GB as a 32-bit operating system can only address 4GB of memory. 8GB or more requires a new operating system like Linux or Windows Vista 64-bit.

The review continues here.
