Nah, I'm talking older than that. Pretty much for the first nForce to nForce 500 series. Starting with the 600 series, they started making boards specifically for AMD and Intel processors separately, I suspect due to the prior issues they were having.

I think the 500 series wasn't as bad, but there were still intermittent issues.

Yea I have had nF2, nF2 Ultra 400, nF3 250GB, nF3 Ultra (S939 AGP), nF4 Ultra-D, nF4 SLI-DR, nF590 SLI, nF 750a, nF 780i. In that range I have had from TNT PCI cards all the way up to GTX 280s for Nvidia and Radeon 7200 all the way up to 4870 on these chipsets. That's why I was saying I personally thought it was a myth because I never had any problems at all between XP, Vista, and 7.

A 650 is worse than a 560ti and the 660 is out of his budget.
