Until after I bought the board, I'd been under the impression that Tyan
was supposed to be top notch for dual proc boards.  Of course, then I buy
it, and people start telling me that it is crap.  

That said, what boards are better for dual procs?  I couldn't find any
Intel boards at the time (at least not at a reasonable price).  Everything
seems to be definitaly crap (PC Chips anyone?), Intel, or Tyan.
