Asus P7P55D-E PRO performance loss when not using Nvidea GPU?

Hi Guys,

as the title says, Will there be performance loss when not using Nvidea GPU on Asus P7P55D-E PRO (Intel)?
Or I cannot have the full potential of either the GPU or CPU when they are not of the same company (Intel or AMD)?

Reason I ask is because I'm planning to buy either Asus HD7850 / HD7870 but my friend told me it is better to chose
a GPU from Nvidea since my chipset is Intel.

Another question, which is better Asus HD7850/HD7870 or the older brother Asus HD6970?
My budget currently can afford only a HD7850 but HD6970 is very close behind. the only difference maker for me here is that 7850 uses a lot less power but I kinda like also the massive size of Asus HD6970. which is which? :-(

Thank you in advance
