I'm trying to get some specs together for 2 business systems. I want CHEAP and reliable. No bells or whistles. Right now I'm looking at Duron 800Mhz. I found this motherboard:
It has onboard video, sound, and LAN.
Does anyone have any experience with these motherboards? Are they any good?
(obviously I wouldn't, and didn't, use this for my own system I just built)
I don't see cheap and reliable coming together in the same sentence with a VIA chipset. If you want cheap then stick with what you have. If you want reliability then get a better motherboard with an Intel chipset. Just my opinion of course.
Well, since nobody answered your specific question, I'll take a stab. I haven't ever used any MB made by PCChips. Why? I read the forums. And in every post I've ever seen about them the consensus seems to be to stay FAR away from their stuff. Basically you get what you pay for: crap.
