motherboards have been asking for "inexpensive" motherboards.

That's fine with me. I don't want to split hairs. I was just surprised to
see my two Tyan boards (s2895 and s2892) in different categories, since they
are _very_ similar.
1. Tyan Thunder K8WE (S2895) AMD K8 AMD-8131T, NVIDIA
CK804 SMSCR LPC47B397 AMD OpteronT Socket 940
2. Tyan Thunder K8SE (S2892) AMD K8 AMD-8131T, NVIDIA
CK804 WinbondT W83627HF AMD OpteronT Socket 940
