Not using on-board graphics, they do work however.
Realtek NIC works out of the box.
Broadcom NIC not available without drivers. Is very hard to install and is not worth the bother.

Only issue is Window tools for Windows don't work on this machine.

Have not had an answer from ANYONE that can resolve the issue, and I have been waiting for months on months...

Qubes 3.0 - Windows Tools are broken and will NOT work.
Qubes 3.1 - Windows Tools fixed, all works perfectly.

QUBES 3.2

Standard grafic driver causes regular crash after a few hours of use (NVIDIA GF108). Also sometimes artefacts on screen redraw

Solution:
create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-video.conf

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nouveau"
EndSection

solved the problem for me.

What about the other devices and GFX cards?
I have multiple cards and devices.
I run multiple monitors.
The card can handle 6 monitors per card.
