    What exactly do you wish you know about it?

    Here's the specs on the chipset:

    http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx_benefits.htm

    And since its based on the SiS315: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/sis315.html

    SIS graphics are not even close to being in the same league as ATI and NVidia dedicated video cards. Even the older Radeon 8500/9xxxx or Geforce 3/4/FX series cards will outperform it in almost every game and without using 64MB of your system memory and at better quality.

    Here's some benchmarks: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/chipsets/display/int-chipsets-roundup.html

    Thanks, exactly what I wanted.
    Especially the x-bit labs stuff. Too bad I've already bought the motherboard and could have used the information to possibly get a better inbuilt graphics, but all can be fixed I guess with a dedicated card.
    Thanks again

    Just make sure you disable the onboard graphics before you install new video card.
    The same would apply for onboard audio/audio card
