Intel or AMD? Does Nvidia work better w/ AMD or Intel?
Does Nvidia work better with AMD or Intel?
I'm trying to choose between Intel and AMD. My question is which motherboard is better? The AMD mobo or the Intel mobos? Which works better with GeForce and the CPU? What does GeForce work better with? AMD or Intel? Which does Nvidia prefer in general? I noticed that AMD is listed before Intel, but I also noticed there's 4 Intel mobos available and only 1 AMD. I really want the nForce chipset, and as far as I know, only Nvidia has rights to put it on their mobos. This is the deciding factor in whether I choose AMD or Intel, because I've already decided on Nvidia for my mobo and GPU. So, again, which does Nvidia work better/more compatibly with?

It doesn't really matter as far as compatibility goes. It's widely known that the 8800 series requires a very fast CPU to get the full potential from it. Most AMD's as well as lower end intels will bottleneck it considerably. I'm not knocking AMD's just pointing out that the 8800 series needs a C2D minimum to reach it's full potential.

Unfortunately yes it is true the current dual core AMD
will give you HALF the gaming power of a new Intel quad core running the 8800GTXUltra.

AMD now AMD/ATI are said to be releasing some competition later in the year.
