SIS=Chipset maker
theyve been around a while and are know for making budget chipsets
they are ususally slower, and cheaper than VIA, ALI, or intel
but they temd to be pretty good stability and compatibility wise.

EDIT BTW
which board you got

SiS is no longer budget anymore

648 is here and it kicks butt from the early tests

SIS = Silicon Integrated Systems, a Taiwanese manufacturer of motherboard and video chips.

Budget chipset maker, and a GOOD budget chipset maker.

Only warning I have is with Linux and the SiS530 chipset; You have to do custom install or the memory handling gets messed (slow as molassoas).

Also thier 'budget' name is something of a misnomer as most people tend to equate budget with inferior. The chipsets are solid and tested.

From what I've been hearing and reading for the past 6 monthes or so SiS is one of the better buys out there, solid. stable, cheap with power and features. As for their AMD offerings I don't know but suspect that they are also good. I'm trying to track down a micro-ATX SiS mobo for new LAN rig I'm building. Whats the word on ECS motherboards, they have a new one P4S5MG/651+ here in the US based on SiS651/962L, I'd heard that ECS didn't offer much for OCing tools, what the word out there.
