Do ATI's and Nvidias work better on native chipsets?

  1. I am looking to buy a ASUS Crosshair IV with the AMD Phenom II 1055t, and am looking at video cards to go with it. I thought it might be better to get an ATI card, since some features like sli wouldn't work on the the AMD chipset. Am I wrong in thinking this way?

    I noticed that this article- http://www.techspot.com/guides/304-top-mainstream-and-highend-graphics-cards/

    suggests the nvidia gtx 460 overclocked, would this still be a good choice with my setup?

    No, they don't work better.

    There is no need for three different threads revolving around the same build.

    I'm just trying to not get off topic in different forums.

    Hi sethbest.If you intend to go for a dual GPU setup in the near future then the GTX 460 wouldn't be an ideal choice. The Crosshair IV Formula supports CrossFire and not SLI configurations. Thus, the Radeon HD 5850 may be more suited to your needs.

    And as for your previous question, there are no differences when running nVidia cards on an AMD motherboard and vice-versa.
