I want to upgrade my graphics card to MSI ATI 4870 but lots of hardware sellers didnt recommend that and instead they said I should get an nvidia card because my Intel mobo supports nvidia cards rather than ATI's so is this true? I would love to upgrade to nvidia but they dont have a card that matches ATI 4870 in terms of price and performance so i have to resort to ATI.
here are my system specs:
Motherbrd : ASUSTeK P5K SE Intel P35.
Processor : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz.
If anything they are telling you the opposite of the truth. A single card will work in any board with no problems, regardless of brands. Multi-GPU solutions such as CrossFireX and SLI won't work with all chipsets. The P35 chipset only supports CrossFireX, which means you can't run more than one NVIDIA card but you can run more than one ATI card.
