Systemboard chip-set VS video card.

If your system board has say, an ATI chip and an AMD chip (north or southbridge either way) does it matter if you use an Nvidia or ATI video card? I dont understand the significance.

I Am currently running an AMD setup with Nvidia video cards and my MB has Nforce4 Chipset on it. I want to upgrade to an AM+ MB but am unable to find one with Nvidia chipsets of anykind. They only have AMD and ATI chipsets. Do I have to abandon AMD and go Intel to do quad core the right way?

Any help would be appreciated
