I'm pretty sure the Via K8T800Pro is just a wee bit better than the nvidia nforce3, although there is virtually no difference at all.

No, chipsets don't limit your graphics card selection at all. Chipsets have quite a bit to do with overclocking though,

This site will have everything you need to know about chipsets.
