Default Learn me on NVidia AMD boards

Ok, I know nothing outside of the world of AMD chipsets... What are some good Nvidia chipset AMD boards?? Rankings, pros and cons?? How do they compare for overclocking, benchmarking and overall performance compared to AMD chipsets??

TIA...

Does Nvidia even make higher end AMD chipsets?... After browsing newegg I came up with nothing with Nvidia chipsets other then extremely budget or old boards.

Newegg.com - ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe&#47;HDMI AM2&#43;&#47;AM2 NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Your only two options, but if you're building a nVidia based rig with AMD it's the way to go. But honestly AMD > nVidia chipsets, at least that's my opinion.

^^I agree, AMD makes excellent chipsets and now that ATi is dominating the high end gpu market there is no reason to get a nvidia motherboard.
