    Does anyone know of any problems running audio on a Matsonic Motherboard with an sis chipset. here is the chipset: SIS 651 + 961 and SIS 651 + 962.
    I am running a gina 20 with P4 2.0, 512 ddr.
    please help me cause sometimes it runs great and others it fails. I run Win2K with sonar, nuendo, Acid, WaveLab 4, Sondforge 6, and some other stuff.

    Umm, yes..there is a problem with Sis chipsets and the Echo products...they do not work together. I tried it out on an Asus P4S533 board and had no success whatsoever...you need Intel with Echo stuff...it's the safest bet. Sometimes you should not just go with cheap and non Intel chipsets....

    What memory are you using anyways? What is your memory ratio settings in the BIOS if it allows you that option?
    What is your quest? What is your favorite color? Oh wait...this isn't the Monty Python quotes page!!! :p

    My bios doesnt give me ratio settings. I am going to purchase a new Motherboard with an Intel chipset. Which Intel chipset will work the best with my gina20? I am going to swap it out and then build a internet surfing pc with the sis board. thanks! it has been running ok lately, but I cannot get my latency very low at all.

    Any Intel chipset will work with the echo products...Intel is the safest way all around, works with everything.
    The reason being is that Via, Sis and Ali all don't go with the motorolla chipset design codes. They go against the grain so to speak. So that causes your lack of low latency, constant problems or a working card in general.
