Default Is this compatible?

Hey guys, stupid question here..

Are all Asus mobo's compatible with nVidia? I originally was getting a Radeon 1900 XTX but I want to switch that with a 8800 GTX. Will I need to switch mobo's as well?

Itll work.
Driver cleaner pro should be run before installing the new card.
Google it and follow the instructions.

Wait, I thought you already had the ATI Card installed. You won't need to run driver cleaner pro on a clean format and install.

But for future reference. Whn changing from ATI to nvidia or Nvidia to ATI, then you run driver cleaner pro before installing the new card.
