hi all, question about the Asus AM1M-A for a pfsense box. Going to pair this with an am1 Athlon 5350 AM1, ECC ram, and an dual lan intel EXPI9402PT Intel PRO/1000 PCI-e.

This cpu does aes-ni for my open vpn, which is a plus. Apparently, it supports/works with unregistered ecc ram (ECC works on AM1)

WIll the intel nic work on the amd platform? its the Intel 82571GB Gigabit Controller. Has anyone tested it?

Going intel atom with aes-ni with ecc is several times the price, and as this is for home use, I do not see why.
