I making my comeback to PC Gaming because...
a.) I Need a Decent PC for College,
b.) I want the mod community support and dedicated server you get with PC games.
c.) StarCraft 2!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want it reasonably cheap with decent performance So I'm going with a AMD CPU and Nvidia GPU, but I'm not sure if Nvidia cards perform well on AMD motherboards that have an AMD Chipset. I don't care about SLI, because there's no point of having two of these cards when I plan on using this card as a dedicated Physx card when I upgrade to the newer Nvidia Geforce 400 series or ATI's Radeon HD 5800's Cards later on this year.

Here's the questions.
  • Do I have to have to use a AMD board that has a Nvidia Chipset?
  • Are there any Performance issues from using a Nvidia Card on AMD Chipsets?

    Thanks in advance to any who takes the time to reply

    First off, if you're going for budget, why are you going with an nVidia card? AMD is the budget-king, and beats nVidia at every pricepoint below $300. What's your budget for a GPU?

    1. No, you don't.
    2. No, there shouldn't be.

    Thanks for the reply. I don't really have a budget but for the GTS 250 1GB models are only $140. Like I said in my post, I plan on upgrading anyways to take advantage of the slated price drops of the High-End GPUs. What better way to do that than to buying this card now and using it as a dedicated Physx card later when I upgrade. Can't do that If I go the the AMD/ATi route.

    No, but you could only shell out $80 for a 9600GSO for PhysX. For $140, you can get an HD5770 which has much better performance all of the features of DX11.

    The GTS 250 1gb was about 90$ USD, I have no clue what you mean 140. OIf there was soome sudden 50$ inflation overnight, then get the 5770 at that price.

    And
