Are Via Motherboards becoming scarce ?

I am going to build myself a Socket 939 AMD dual core CPU and don't need SLi type board. But I was looking at Asus Motherboards and see only 2 VIA Chipset current models, where as Nvidia Chipset seem a plenty.

Can someone tell me if Nvidia Chipset Motherboard are the way forward over VIA boards please.

just been looking at one of my local places click here and see 3 full pages of motherboards Sok939 with Nforce chips and only 4 actual boards with the VIA, also seems to be a few Ali/Uni-chrome chipsets.

Think I should be asking for Nforce motherboard reviews.

thanks for the pointer, I will add that to my short list (very short list)

You go onto say nforce has Firewall built in, erh wouldn't this conflict with a dedicated software programme ?
