As you can tell from the Content Creation testing above, choosing between the AMD or VIA chipsets for you Athlon system is an easy one. However, the different manufacturers of KX133 motherboards are all on par and about equal in every stand point. The GA-7VM was only slightly (and I mean very slightly) less stable during testing the Asus counterpart. I can only leave the advantages and features for you to read, and leave the final decision up to you.
