Thinking about putting Fedora 17 on a desktop with a M5A88-M motherboard and AMD FX 4-Core processor (black edition). Can anyone tell me if Fedora 17 is compatible with this hardware?

The short answer is yes, Fedora 17 x86-64 is compatible with this hardware. If you are still in doubt, you can boot from the Live DVD to test without installing or losing any data from your existing installation.

AMD always, and will be fully supported in Linux generally.

First CPU with 64 bits supports was created by AMD (AMD64). Intel only copied it and renamed Intel 64 (aka EMT64).

Always be supported, don't worry =)

Of course, it's compatible.

I'm the proud owner of an AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1055T Processor, and AMD/RedHat/Fedora user since AMD K6 without any problems.

The more problematic hardware are always graphic cards and "fake" RAID controller integrated in the motherboard.

Yes, I use F17 on my AMD E-450 APU netbook without any issues. At worst, you MIGHT need a proprietary driver for your graphics card to work to its fullest.
