    Motherboard v Graphics Card

    Hello all,

    A quick question. I have an ASUS P5N32 SLi motherboard. At the moment I have an Asus nVidia GeForce 7600 graphics card in it. I am looking to change this to the ATI HD4850. My motherboard though has an nVidia chipset. I know the graphics will work in my motherboard, but I presume there's no inherent problem (unless wanting to do crossfire/sli) to having an ATI graphics card in an nVidia chipset motherboard?

    Nope no problems running an ATI card on an Nvidia chipset, but you wont be able to use crossfire on your P5N32-E
