Since its introduction, nVidia’s nForce4 chipset coupled with AMD’s successful socket 939 Athlon 64, has been greeted with enthusiasm and been a very successful product. Both gamers and non gamers alike have hailed it for its stability and performance under a variety of tasks. One of its most popular features of course has been the SLI functionality for all our gaming buddies out there. But, while not everyone needs the uber-fast frame rates that SLI can put out, we all want good performance and rock solid stability at a decent price.

Chaintech has been putting out motherboards, graphics cards and sound cards for quite a while now and they’ve developed a strong line up of value priced offerings. Today we get the chance to grab a handful of their Value Edition 939 motherboard, the VNF4 Ultra. While the motherboard is the ‘Ultra’ version of the nForce4 chipset, it's not sporting any SLI, but priced at $92, Chaintech is making an effort to combine performance with economy.

Taking a look at the specifications, we can see that for a ‘budget’ motherboard, Chaintech has thrown quite a few features in especially considering the price tag.
