The newest SiS video _card_ I can recall ever encountering was made last 
century, before Intel began integrating video in motherboard chipsets as a 
matter of course. IOW, SiS video is typically a component on a low cost 
motherboard, often, maybe usually, on motherboards without slots in which to 
put any video card regardless of price. I bought myself a SiS video 
motherboard once. That won't happen again, except maybe under extreme duress, 
neglect or accident.
