Default AMD mobo with Nvidia video problems?

hey im building a computer for the first time, i only have 1 real question, I know that sli will not work on a AMD chipset but will i still have problems using a single gpu card on one? im thinking about using a phenom x4 965 and a amd 770 motherboard (which seems to be the best bang for your buck with 1 gpu) but according to most benchmarks ive seen nvidia usually kicks ati's ***, would i likely run into problems not using a ati card on that motherboard and what kind of problems are we talking about?

there's no issues..you just can't SLI on the board..but if it's just 1 slot, that won't be an issue to you

Don't see any problems. My sister is running AMD Rig with nVidia GPU for a few years now.

There's really no problem except for the lack of option to go dual video cards later on, and that's really not an issue.
