Is it me, or does MSI have a new motherboard every month? I wonder how these guys do it on such a continuous basis? They must have an around the clock R&D department. Where there is a platform there is a good chance MSI has a board to support it. Being one of the biggest names in the business, MSI has most recently started to dominate the video market with their new Ge-Force 4 line of VGA cards. Their cards are based on Nvidia's latest chip solutions and MSI is rated in PC magazine as one of the best VGA manufacturers around today.

Once again the hype surrounding the KT333 chipset from VIA has flown across the web in its many variations but is this a viable upgrade option, or just a ploy to get some money rolling in a semi stagnant market? Well since it is new and relatively hot the folks at MSI have come to the table bringing the KT3 as their contribution to the cause. We will have to see if it is worth your dollars or just another face in the crowd. Can the VIA KT333 outperform its predecessor the KT266A? Read the whole review to get all the facts of the new KT3 from MSI.
