Gigabyte B85M-HD3 Motherboard

  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Everything works, apart from the workspace/suspend/settings glitch in LMDE (read below).

What doesn't work:

In LMDE, the built-in graphics card doesn't handle multiple workspaces very well when you suspend the machine or change system settings while apps are running in workspaces, for some reason.

What was done to make it work:

Having multiple workspaces open, then putting the machine into suspend mode (either manually, or just leaving the computer idle), will occassionally cause LMDE to freeze up.

Also, editing the hot keys in System settings while there are several apps in different workspaces does the same thing - freezes up LMDE.

Sometimes, the login screen will not show the login prompt, even though you can type in the password, hit enter, and view the workspaces again.

Obviously, there is something that LMDE does not like with the built-in graphics card to this motherboard (or the drivers for it).
