Hmm. Running a Jetway 830CH SiS chipset with a Duron 1.3 next to me here. It works most of the time and it was cheap. Perhaps avoid SiS chips. Jetway pretty much make cheap motherboards and supply reference drivers. Updates for older hardware happens slowly or not at all. Pity its running WinME... doesn't help stability either.

Bottom line... Dunno, you pay for quality, and I didn't pay much. The integrated sound works, but causes stuttering and big slowdowns in games. Some AC97 compatible chip.
