While comparing boards..

Simply put - I'm really confused. I'm trying to figure out which board would go best with a P4 2.4 533, and 512 MB of DDR333(cas2) .
I've read around two dozen reviews over the past few days, and the SiS chipsets were pretty appealing because of the price. However, I'm wondering just how crippled the SiS realistic benchmarks [UT2003, Quake, Etc.] were because of a Ti 4200 being used? Many of the new boards that I'm comparing to are benched using the Radeon 9700, and I'm having a hard time comparing them. I mean, looking at the SiS boards showing only 60 FPS in UT2003, and then comparing them to the 845GE/PE boards at 200+ fps.. It really makes me wonder.

What would be more realistic numbers, assuming they were both using the 9700 card and a 2.4ghz processor?

While you're here..
In your opinion, what would be the best motherboard to purchase with a price of around 80-100? I don't mind paying a little more than 100 bucks, but anything above 120 is out my scope.

I'm really tired right now so if something sounds like "blah blah" I'm sorry in advance lol -.-

Best mobo for under $100 is probably the Gigabyte GA-8SG667, according to Anandtech this board will support up to 3 DIMMs of DDR400, tested with Corsair XMS PC3200 Cas2 memory.
