Default SiS648 Chipset

I was interested in getting a motherboard based on the SiS648 chipset. I have always delt with Intel chipsets and never anything else. Are there any compatability issues with any kind of hardware? Ive read about some problems with VIA's chipsets and I wondered if SiS was the same way.

Howzit there,

I have an SiS Chipset and from my experiences it does not have any real issues from what i have encountered. This is not to say that there are no issues, just that i have not come across them yet. I had win2000 and winxp pro(with all updates) and so far problem free. I hope that helps.......

I've had two AMD SiS-based boards, and have had no problems with either of them. The 648 chipset has been getting some incredible reviews as of late, I think it would be a good buy.

According to benchmarks and reviews I've read, the SiS 648 chipset coupled with DDR 400 is actually beating the Intel 845G with Rambus and yet they are cheaper. For overall kick ass performance all around on the P4 platform, SiS is leading the pack at this time.

The 648 chipset is probably the best combination of tweakabiliy (is that even a word?) and stability out of all the P4 chipsets out there. If I could see my way clear to a P4 upgrade, there's no doubt I would get SiS. Their 735 and 745 Athlon chipsets are some of the best values going and do not suffer from any of the issues of VIA chipsets. Take a look at both Asus' and Soyo's SiS offerings, I don't think you'd be disappointed by either one.

My 645 is bullet proof and I have used it with a very wide assortment of old and new hardware. O and its fast too The 648 was built with the experience gained from the 645 chipset so I have no doubt its a killer.
