openelec on AMD? - thewhiteark - 12-24-2011

I'm about to buy an HTPC, and I'm considering an AMD build (Athlon II X2 250 3.0GHz, Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3).

However I'm a linux noob, and I've heard (might be falsely so) that linux can have a hard time running on AMD CPU's, and I'm afraid I'll have twice the trouble with openelec...

Any thoughts on this? should I switch to an IONCore i3 build? Or are there users here happily running an AMD-openelec match made in heaven HTPC?

Thank you very much!

But now I've a different question: googling AMD Fusion has yielded different results and I'm confused: There's the E-350 (is that a chipset? a CPU?), and there are the A-68 Vision. Are they both different names for the same Fusion?

Example: what's the difference between Gigabyte's GA-E350N-USB3 and GA-A75M-UD2H mobos?

The difference between the A75 and the E-350 is that the A75 is a chipset and the E-350 is a APU. The APU is a CPU with GPU together, the chipset requires a CPU installed on the MoBo.
Now for further specifications, use Google before asking...
