Motherboard comments?

I'm getting ready to build a new 1U server for myself; those two
MBs have been suggested.  The machine is not heavily loaded, but
I plan to base the new system on Xen with dedicated VMs for things
like web+mailman, dns, experimentation, etc.  Any comments on how
well these would work, and in particular support for the Ethernet
and disk controllers?  (The big advantage of the first one is the
VT support, so that I can run things like FreeBSD which don't have
DomU code.  I'll probably get 2G of RAM, and dual 300G SATA drives
in a RAIDframe configuration.

I may run -current; more likely, it will be 4.0beta moving towards
4.0, since it's a production server.
