I've used a couple of VIA-based boards for Myth systems. There were
newer socket-754 and 939 boards. From what I have read most of the
problems were with older boards.

The only problem I have had was having to adjust the PCI latency in
order to get multiple recordings to work glitch-free.

As always YMMV.
