    nForce chipsets and an ATI card...

    Hey guys,

    2 Questions:

    1) If you were to get an Nforce chipset mobo and stick an ATI card in. Would its performance be worse than if you were to stick an Nvidia card in? (for arguments sake take the latest things, so an Nforce5 and say the 7900's and x1900xt's)

    While I am here
    2) What do the nforce chipsets have over the i965 and i975x chipsets

    Thanks

    (crunch time for my new system purchase is soon so I would like to just get a few things out the way)

    the nforce 5 isnt out yet, so its impossible to say, but ati cards ran fine on the nforce 4 chipset if thats any help.

    1) Other than the cards limitations, no.
    2) See Clunk above. Few bits of info around the web for it - google

    yes, i was talking about the intel version. im sure i read somewhere that the first nforce 5's will use some nforce 4 parts in the manufacture?? might be worth waiting a while if thats the case.
