Any problems with the AK31 and Radeon 8500?

I'm running an Epox 8KHA+ with a retail Radeon 8500, and I have to underclock my video GPU, and still get some artifacts. If I leave it unclocked, at default, it locks up anytime I use 3D. It seems I'm not the only one too. But I was wondering if there was such an issue with the Shuttle AK31? I've heard the AK31 is a great mobo, and a good overclocker. But I was wondering if there are any problems with the combo. I don't plan on replacing my Epox, but I do have a friend looking to build a new rig, and if the AK31 and Radeon work together well, I'd be more than willing to tell him to get one.

For the same price, go for the MSI 745 Ultra. Very stable, fast board, with great OC potential.

Have you tried the combination of MSI 755 Ultra and the Radeon 8500? Basically, I'm trying to find out if there are any incompatibilities with the Radeon 8500 and any other mobos other than the 8KHA+.

The 745 is only incompatible with older 3.3v vid cards. All new 1.5v AGP4x cards should work OK.
