anyway here is some reading material to help you decide



this is a soyo p4s discussion board

i found problems:
overclocking higher than 129 fsb
cold boot issues
video card lock ups on ati and gf4

but read for your own needs

i appriciate u finding that for me... your right, that card seems too buggy

forget that


GWAHHA! this is so hard to find a good mobo in my price range (under $130 prefereably)


i originally selected this mobo but its sold out at newegg and i cant seem to find anything better anywhere else that suits my needs...


it has to be able to support pIV 2.8ghz processor and pc3200ddr ram (which i have)

bro what ever you do do not get in a hurry in picking your mobo

i did the first time around and regretted it if you have to wait until the product is out for reviews or go with a proven winner.

if i can help let me know

it does look good but i'm not sure if the ddr 400 support is real as no user reviews are out yet.

gigabyte makes a good board though but if i bought memory for it and it was ddr 400 i would buy what i neededc in one stick;)

other than that i'd say go for it:D

wolf, thanx for your help


i found the board on another site for cheaper link


the concern is that (look at the title) S/L thing... what does that mean?

S/L - means Sound and LAN (NIC) on board. This is probably the only SiS648 board that makes any sense. Most others Asus, MSI have loads of problems. Not saying that this is excellent either (even though i am not a Gigabyte fan) - I would go Intel PE now but thats me.
