This is a socket A board for AMD processors, based on the SiS730s chipset. It supports only SDRAM (up to 1 GB) and not the faster DDR RAM. It has onboard SiS AGP graphics that can share up to 64 MB of memory and a 4x AGP slot for an external display card. Besides these, it has only two PCI slots, one AMR (audio modem riser), two USB ports (with two more optional USB ports), and on-board AC 97 audio. 


Price Rs 3,300 (+ 2 yrs warranty)
: Room for expansion with 5 PCI slots

The board’s performance results were similar to those of the KOB KT266a FDSX, though it costs slightly lower. Add to the fact that it also has on-board AGP, and it becomes a good buy for those who do not want to spend on an external AGP card. Overall, a good buy for daily usage at homes or offices.
