    What motherboard has the SOYO Dragon chipset ?


    Correct me if Im wrong on any of this. But I was reading about chipsets on motherboards and it said that the SOYO Dragon was the way to go if you have a Nvidia video card.

    If this is ture, what brand am I looking for ?

    Thanks

    :cool:

    It's not a chipset I didn't think? the soyo Dragon IS a mobo :p

    The Soyo dragons use the Via KT266 chipset which is pretty much the performance leader...straight from soyo's website

    D DR SDRAM

    R AID controller on board

    A udio on board, with 6-chanel Hardware Audio

    G raphic, Universal AGP Pro slot

    O verclocking, setup FSB by 1MHz increment

    N etwork, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet

    Back in super socket 7 days, nvidia cards used to hate ALI chipsets, but know apart from the occasional duff update all nvidia cards seem to work with just about any board.

    I just bought a Dragon Plus!. MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE PLUS VERSION. THere is an enormous performance dfference between the Dragon and Dragon Plus!. The Plus has a revision 2 chipset (KT266A), which does offer a considerable performance increase.

    no no famine...you missed the point..DRAGON is NOT a chipset!

    DRAGON is a motherboard made by SOYO...it uses the VIA KT266 chipset...

    The board you are lookin at uses the same chipset, but it is NOT a DRAGON...if you want a dragon goto www.soyo.com and choose america on the site map and then goto products and you can look at the dragon boards that are availible :)
