Default NF3-A Chipset ?

I have a mobo with the NF3-A chipset. Is it compatible with the 6xxx nvidia series? I heard someone say it wasn't. Is this true or will I need to go with ati or something.

There are some issues when combining NF3 and 6xxx. I actually got the pleasure of experiencing the incompatibility myself. While gaming, I would get a slight pause in gameplay, which almost seemed like poor FPS, but wasn't.

With your mobo, go with an ATi card. The 9800 Pro is pretty comparable to the 6600GT. The x1600Pro I believe comes in AGP (which you need) as well.
