You really need to be more specific. Over the years, there have been numerous chipsets made by numerous chipset manufacturers - AMD/ATI, ALi, Intel, Nvidia, SiS, VIA, etc.

Generally if you are buying or building a computer you decide on the CPU type you are looking for than you look into the boards that will be compatible with it. Then you will discover that there may be a number of chipsets that are used on these boards so you look up the differences/advantages of these chipsets and price ranges of boards with each to help you decide. Then you look at the features on each individual motherboard within your price range for features you may want or need. When you narrowed it down to less than 4 choices you then look at individual reviews by consumers and the pros to see which is the better choice for you.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
