Default Chipset Question

Hey guys i have an ATI Xpress 200 chipset on my MSI-RS480M-IL motherboard and currently i have an ATI X700 Pro. I'm looking to upgrade to an eVGA 6800GS and i was wondering if there are going to be any conflictions with my chipset and the nvida video card. This little slip of paper that came with my mobo said it strongly suggests that i buy an ATI card. Any help would be appreciated .

Nope, infact sometimes they work better together I've heard. As long as your motherboard has a PCI-express slot and your video card is PCI-express then your all set
