I think your question should be "which chipsets work for the type of hardware & software I will be using with my computer"? That's because, there are plenty that are fine but not authorized for use with certain hardware/software. A perfect example of that is Digidesign & Pro Tools. Very specific requirements are dictated for that platform.
So you best know what exactly it is you want to assemble? Or you could leave it up to companies like Sweetwater, Musicians Friend, Guitar Center that have dedicated & recommended computers that have been fairly investigated already to perform well for digital audio purposes.
Your question is sort of like "I need a car. Which one?" I would recommend one with 4 tires on it. You want to also make certain that it has an engine. So a VW engine in a Chevy Van should get you to work and something that could be used for racing five years from now. After you replace the engine & body.
I'll buy a microphone now so that I'm ready to make a recording when I purchase a recorder next year?
Nothing like thinking ahead of a head.
