I've had bad luck with VIA, and Intel as far as sound quality. Both
sucked. M-Audio stuff sounds VERY noticably better.
nVidia is just a constant hassle to keep it working. I'd avoid it at
all costs. If you're talking video chips, I'm very happy with my intel
845... effortless. If you're talking about integrated audio (nForce or
whatever), I'd say stay clear.
