you can also get the viak600t or whatever, but the SiS748 is usually cheaper

I heard VIA chipsets have lots of troubles with drivers. What do you think?

HELL NO. VIA are absolutely the best chipsets available (IMO). Their Southbridges are very good for drivers, etc. I have always used VIA, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.

The only chipsets that I have ever heard that problems with drivers were the early nForce series.
