Amd X6 and Nvidia graphics card question

I have recently built a new computer and I was talking to a friend about getting a graphics card. I told him I was looking into the nvidia gtx 460 and he told me that only the ati cards take full advantage of the new phenom x6 cores or something like that. I was rather skeptical and im not sure if he misunderstood my intentions or whatever. Anyways a straight forward answer from someone who knows would be great. Thank you very much.

PS This is a singular graphics card I am not looking into SLI(especially since its a Cross Fire board)

My computer

AMD Phenom X6 1050t 2.8ghz
Asus M4a89GTD Pro Motherboard
No graphics card right now
and other specs arent too important for this question

  1. if you're not going to SLI, then you shouldn't run into any problems running a nvidia card with an amd cpu
  2. To put it bluntly, your friend has no idea what he's talking about.
  3. ^yes, it appears your friend is an idiot
