So I'm building a PC, doing the first bit right now, getting all the parts down pat before I buy them. Now in the build I have planned out I was going to use an AMD FX-8320 as it is a nice powerful one challenging some i7, and a GeForce GTX 780, it's a good card, I can get it for a good price and I know it'll give me nice performance with the games I intend to use it on.
Now someone I know saw the parts list and said that you should use an AMD video card if you are using an AMD processor, said that if I used the 780 I would have loads of issues.
Now I haven't seen anything like this, but as he said it to me I felt I should double check, so I've read a bit but can't find much, what do you guys now about this?
no, you do not have to use AMD gpus with AMD cpus. You can mix and match with no problems. There is no connection between cpu type and graphics card type. Plently of people buy amd cpus because they are cheaper, so they can afford high-end NVidia cards.
See that's what I figured, I will go tell him he's an idiot, I mean I have seen it reccommended so often to go AMD cpu just so you can get a better video card, generally nvidia. So I though why would that be if there was any issue?
