AMD/NIVIDIA Compatibility Question.... ?

Hello all,

I currently have an ASUS M4A78LT-M LE Motherboard which uses the AMD® 760G/SB710 chipset. When I first built my computer, I instantly disabled everything AMD related in fear of it causing issues with my older nVidia GPU (XFX 9600 GSO 512MB DDR3).

Now, I'm just wondering did I do something unnecessary? I just recently read somewhere that using a single nVidia GPU on an AMD chipset is fine (non-SLI). Would it be better if I reinstalled all the AMD chipset files? Would there be any performance increase?


ALSO, read something else which was crazy and just wanted clarification. Is it possible to run one monitor off the AMD integrated graphics (Radeon HD3000) and another monitor off the nVidia discrete GPU? I thought the integrated graphics would be disabled but ... huh?

Thanks,

Best solution

Well, no need to install the AMD drivers. No performance increase. As for the onboard GPU, it should disable itself rendering itself useless. ;)

Yeah, no compatibility problems.
I don't think that discrete thing is possible.
