Default ATI & Nvidia

Would an ATI card work well with the Nvidia, NF4 chipset? I tested a Radeon X300 and it seemed to run CSS fine but I was looking at some higher end cards and I just wanted to know if I could upgrade later.

ATi cards work better on Nvidia chipsets than Nvidia cards do >_<. Nvidia tried too hard to make the ATi cards work with their chipsets.

It doesn't really matter though, the difference isn't noticeable.

He's right about that with the nf3...nvidia spent far too much time making sure it would work well with ATI GPUs and as a result it performs terribly with nvidia GPUs...you'll get problems with stuttering with the nf3 and it'll limit your overclocking potential on the card as well
