Nvidia VCard with an AMD motherboard. Good or bad idea? Tags: Nvidia AMD Motherboards Graphics Last response: February 22, 2010 7:00 PM in Graphics & Displays Share zoethecus February 22, 2010 2:59:20 PM I have an ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard and in need of a VCard to run three 20" Samnsung screens for futures trading, not gaming. Can I get a Nvidia card or do I need an ATI for this app? I'm concerned about "forcing" compatibilty of the architecture between the two chipsets. Perhaps this is an overblown fear.
