Sis 740 / Via KM266 based computer Tags: Motherboards Sis Computer Last response: October 12, 2002 9:46 AM in Motherboards Share Monolitus October 12, 2002 7:11:26 AM Hi there, I'm interseted in upgrading my old computer to a new budget one. The main purpose of this computer is office work + net surf + little gaming. I have thought about the following solutions: Mobo inc VGA: Sis 740 (PCchips / ECS) CPU: Duron 1.3 Memory: 256 DDR 266MHz This is quite cheap and I think will do. 2 other options are using the VIA KM266 chip (like Gigabyte VKML) or going Intel (???) with the 845G and Celeron Socket 478 (1.7MHz and above) - which are much more expensive. Are these options any good ? shoud I buy Sis 735 + GeForce 2 MX 400 ? (it 100$ more i think) Unfortunately, I could not find any info about the Sis 740 / KM266 mobos ... If anyone knows any' please inform me ... Cheers... More about : sis 740 km266 based computer Spitfire_x86 October 12, 2002 9:46:39 AM You should buy a nForce board. If you are tight in budget, buy ASUS A7N266-VM (nForce 220-D based), $84 at newegg. If you can spend $128, then buy MSI K7N420 Pro (nForce 420-D based). If you buy any nForce 420-D based boards, then use 2 memory modules instead of one for best integrated graphics and system performance. I am currently using Duron 1 GHz + MSI K7N420 Pro + 1 x 128 MB Kingston PC2100 DDR Ram. <b><font color=red> Long live piracy! </font color=red></b> Can't find your answer ? Ask !
