Question Best Motherboard for AMD Atholon XP

I am needed some help in giving some advice. I know that Asus makes pretty good motherboards and i have also heard that VIA Chipsets are kind of buggy when it comes to gaming with AMD processors. I checked out this Asus Motherboard that has an SiS chipset and the specs look decent and has some decent whistles and bells... Think it was the A7S333..... Then also heard that some Abit KR7A board was pretty good.... specs aren't as good, but my friend said some people prefer this.... Give me some opinions and what not.. Would appreciate it.. thanks

I run
AMD Atholon XP 1900+
PC2100 DDR Ram 512megs
MSI nForce Motherboard 420D

I have both an Asus A7V 266 board and an Abit kg-7 Raid.

The Abit wuns a bit faster than the Asus, especially at bootup.

Otherwise, these two are pretty much the same,a nd I wwould recommnd both.
