        My response was specific to the vendor support side of things.
While PV would work fine with any brand of motherboard, Gigabyte flat out
saying they don't support virtualization implies that they don't support VT
(admittedly Windows 7 should change that, but if they aren't supporting VT
yet, one certainly can't count on them to support VT-d in the near future).

I used a Gigabyte GA-5EASV-RH, with an Intel 6600 Core-2 Duo for a 
couple of years, with no problems, running Linux, W2K, WXP, and Solaris 
HVMs. I eventually changed to a Dell R200, but only because it was the 
cheapest rack-mount system I could buy.
