Default VIA chipsets any good

i was looking at mobos and i saw an ABIT "VT7" PT880, that looks pretty good

im changing my mobo cos SIS chipsets are pretty dodgey, but i dont wanna go to another dodgey one.

Is VIA anygood, or just walk away from the idea?

yea ur right about sis they are abit dodgy atm. VIA arent bad but if ur gonna get a amd board the nForce chips are really good,

nforce2 = socket A
nforce3 = socket 754
nforce4 = socket 939 (pic-e versions)

the nforce4 comes as a standard with 800mhz fsb
the ultra with 1000mhz fsb
or the sli which is the ultra with the ability to have 2 nvidia grahics cards running in parrell to improve performance
