Hi everyone

I have decided to build a new pc and have a question for all of you. I am going to go with one of these two choices and was wondering which chipset you would recomend. The SIS645 chipset or the VIA P4X400 I will be running a P4 2.53 with 533mhz front side bus, 512mb of pc2700 memory, geforce4Ti4200, and a maxtor 60gb with Ultra ATA133. The two boards I am choosing from are the Soyo "SY-P4S Dragon Ultra" or the "SY-P4X400 Dragon Ultra Platinum Edition". I can get a better deal on the "SY-P4S" and it handles what I want to install, But was concerned in the chipsets mainly. Which would you recomend?

Thanks and hope to see your replies

I dislike SiS. They seem to have the budget board segment locked up though. I'd say if you can swing it for a P4 go for an Intel chipset.

Thanks for the reply

Do you think via chipset would be a good choice or not either?

Thanks again

I like Via for AMDs (looks like NVida has killer AMD chipsets now too). I haven't built an Intel system in quite some time now, so I can't say how Via stacks up on a Socket478 board.
Have you read through some reviews on these boards?
