    Better tell us what components do you have in mind to assembly
    (motherboard -manufacturer and model, vga card -manufacturer and model-...)
    so people can give you any advice :-)

    Processor won't be a problem, I guess.

    As motherboard manufacturers (speaking in a mid-range price) I like Gigabyte
    and MSI. Both make very nice products (reliable with good quality
    components).

    For servers (or high-end range) I like Supermicro and Tyan.

    Do you have in mind any specific motherboard brand or model? And what about
    VGA card?

    Most important here should be what kind of use are you gonna give that
    computer (server, desktop, for gamming, home or office...)?

    That does not seem to be a "typical" home user computer.

    Please, provide more specific information about the main purpose of the
    system: what tasks will it be handle? Games, 3D image rendering, video
    processing...?

    Anyway, I keep Gigabyte and MSI as two of the best motherboards
    manufacturers nowadays, for a multi-purpose system. Just dig a bit in their
    websites to find a motherboard that suits your needs.

    In order to determine if the sound will function with Linux, one needs to specify the precise model # of the board - in order that one can look up the specs and/or send an email to the manufacturer to find out what hardware audio codec is embedded on the board.
