I've tried PCChips motherboards.
They are poor quality, restricted upgrade possibilities and their customer service is virtually nonexistant.
The only things I would ever recommend "on-board" would be audio if it is at least 16 bit with a midi port and maybe a modem (56k) or lan NIC if it can do at least 10 and 100 Mb.
Don't buy a Mobo with onboard video, the videocard is probably the best thing to ever upgrade other than extra memory/harddrive. Also, even though I typically get a new mobo and cpu on an upgrade, I personally wouldn't buy a mobo that I couldn't take out the cpu, just in case.
