Match graphics card to chipset. Does it matter?

I built a computer about a year and a half ago, for the first time, and it was enjoyable and turned out well.

I used an ASUS motherboard with an Intel 975 chipset and I have an Nvidia graphics card in it.

My question is, does it matter at all if you buy a motherboard using a chipset from the same manufacturer as the graphics card. In other words, would everything run better if I were to use an Nvidia chipset MB for the next one I build?

I'm tinkering with the idea of building a new computer using the next generation of Nvidia graphics card, and I'm wondering if I should get a new MB using the Nvidia 780 or the new 790 chipset, or would I get better performance going with an Intel x48 chipset MB when they come ou?

Thanks for any help that can be provided.

  1. No, it makes no difference unless you plan on using a dual card setup. Crossfire will only work on ATI and Intel boards and SLI only on NV boards.
