Spurious interrupts and VIA chipsets

Are these chipsets dangerous to use?
I found that other people reported similar problems to this one.
I have Asus ATV133-C motherboard, Duron 1000 MHz.
It does NOT have a Promise controller on board.
And I get such message, everytime after I reboot:
Jan 4 08:53:53 venus kernel: spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
My other hardware is OK: I putted everything from my previous Intel box.

In /proc/interrupts after 1:53 uptime I have:
ERR: 435

Here is what tells /proc/pci about chipset:

PCI devices found:
   Bus 0, device 0, function 0:
