FYI, I've been building my own systems since 1995, and have always used VIA,
SiS and AMD. Never had a problem. I heard that a store here, once
proclaimed that a Jet motherboard was junk, because it never worked for some
reason ... I used that precise same motherboard for several years, flawlessly
and it's still working flawlessly in one of my spare computers.

An old friend of mine, on the other hand, followed "good" advice and buys
only intel motherboards. All these years, he's been having one problem after
another. His computer, has never worked properly.

The point here is, gentlemen ... that besides bad luck, that can happen to
everyone (getting a defective motherboard). It's primarily a question about
the skills of the user, weather the system works or not.
