if you read the ad carefully you will see why the mobo is so cheap.
The suppored CPU is a socket 423!
Current Intel CPU's are socket 473.
The board they are selling is a discontinued unit. Take a good look at the RAM is supports. My bet its RDRAM not DDR ram.
So the price for the board is ok but what you will pay for memory and RAM will more than kill the savings.
I have used PC Chips boards for last 5 years and no major hassles with the product. Its cheap and it works. Its not a premium product, but it gets the job done. Upgrade path is limited to CPU type.
Most PC Chips mobo's have video/sound/lan/modem on board with shared video. If you can live with on board video then these boards will work. If you have 3 PCI expansion slots then you are ahead of the pack! Same for memory slots. Most of these boards only have 2 memory slots. So watch for max suppported memory size.
The boards with VIA or SIS chipsets are not as fast with the onboard video. Intel chipsets do better on handling on board video from my use and building.
PC Chips/Matsonic/A Trend /MSI(?) all the same maker. Just like Clevo/Alienware/Sager/Prostar
Keep hunting for a cheap board, but look for socket 473!
They also make mobo with AGP slots as well. If you are building this for game play then you will WANT a seperate video card. If its just a home PC then the on board video will work OK. On on board video you dont need a video card, but you can add a PCI video card at a later date. So decide what you are going do do with this PC. If you want gaming then go for a seperate AGP slot.
As far a pricing is concerned pricewatch.com should give you some more price/product options.
