My Tyan Tomcat K8E S2865G2NR works very well.  Oh, and in spite of 
the OP comment about their Athlon system sounding like a vacuum 
cleaner, this system is very quiet.  There are florescent lights in 
the room, and they are louder than the computer.  Don't blame it on 
the processor.  There are a lot of things that need to go right to
make a computer quiet.  See other threads for discussions on that.
