Jan 25, Posts: Discussion about old PC hardware. So, has anyone seen any reviews on these boards or this chipset, I can’t seem to find anything anywhere.

That’s as far as it goes. The onboard video plays sofII along with the older games. Wed Sep 24, 4: Tue Sep 23, 7: The front bezel has a tendency to fall off.

Is the Via KM400 chipset any good? and how about it’s onboard video?

This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. Thu Sep 25, 3: It is stable though. Feb 12, Posts: How long it lasts I really don’t know yet.

I used one of those and wasn’t too fond of it.
