Hello all,
I'm getting a new puter soon and wondering what motherboard to get, i am thinking about an Asus one, but i don't know which chipset to get. SiS is a lot cheaper and has a heap more functions, Intel is expensive and does nothing much.
What would you ppl sugest?? Sis or Intel?
Thanks a heap

Both make good chipsets because they are stable. If you want really really stable go with Intel.

If you are planning of sticking with integrated graphics stay away from SIS. All of the SIS graphics chips I've used have been slow and had really crap drivers.

i've got an intel chipset, just be sure to keep the drivers for the onboard chipset, cos if u reinstall then generic drivers will be used by windows. intel is alright but not too flashy.

cheers,

Hmmmmm, after some consideration I think i'll go with the SiS chipset, i'm getting a GF4, and SiS is heaps cheaper and does a whole lot more, i like the look of the new SiS chipset with USB 2, 333mhz DDR etc, thanks for the help

I've heard that the SiS caused windows XP to crash a bit, anyone know if this is true??
