Default NF4 means no ATI?

Does an NF4 chipset on a motherboard mean it cant run ATI cards?

No, its simply a chipset made by Nvidia. If they excluded ATi, they would be excluding a large part of the market.

Both videocards will work.

Do you think a HIS X800GTO IceQ II Turbo will run BF2 alright? (My ANCIENT FX5700 cant play it, so much pixelation!!)

If you must go with ati... skip anything in the X800 line... that is my suggestion.

There are some NF4 based mobos that don't play nicely with ATI cards although they do work. Check and see if the manufacturers of the mobo have forums and ask some questions to people who have the board you are after.

Actually some ATI cards work better then Nvidia cards on an NF4 mobo. Callan what's your budget for a video card?
