I have a Intel i5 3470 Processor can i run AMD gfx cards?

I am looking to add a better GFX card say for games like Battlefield 3/4 and i was wondering if i can use an AMD gfx card in stead of NVIDIA. I currently have the NVIDIA GeForce 640m 2gb and my motherboard is the H61M-DGS will i be able to? Or do i need an AMD processor (remember my Processor is the I5 3470! :P)

Thanks in advance.

  1. The fore mentioned AMD graphics cards use to belong to a company called ATI. They wouldn't dare make them only work with AMD processors so yes you can purchase an AMD graphics card and it will work with your i5. A bunch of fanboys will try and swing you one way or another, I go for what's the best for what I'm willing to spend as long as it has good reviews.
  2. Yes.
  3. Of course you can.
