Hardware Compatibility

I'm researching doing a PC-based MT deployment, and I'm currently looking at using an AMD Turion processor on an nVidia GeForce 6100 chipset (because I refuse to use SiS or VIA for something like this - I trust NV chipsets).

Has any testing been done to verify that MT runs on AMD64 processors? Any testing on the nVidia chispet platforms? I do not have hardware to test on, so I'm curious if anyone has looked in to it.

We currently use MT on the RB5xx platform, and have been pretty satisfied with it; I'm just looking at a deployment scenario that would require more hardware resources than an RB5xx is going to be able to muster.

I don't believe the nvidia chipset is supported, I built 4 new AMD systems built on an ASUS mb with nvidia chipset only to find the onboard NIC's wouldn't work. I don't have the mb model number but we've decided to use them anyway w/o the onboard NIC and hope Mikrotik will add driver support later.
