I know that ATI and AMD are of the same company.


How often do people pair an ATI cards on an Intel motherboard?

Are there any know problems with an ati card on an intel motherboard?

Do they play well with each other?


I guess I like both ATI and Nvidia but I tend to lean more towards ATI, just because thats what I started out with....I like the GEForce GTX 470's but I read that they consume more power and they tend to run hotter than the ATI.



I'm thinking about building a system, but there are too many choices

I like the intel i7950 and the AMD phenom II X6


Im leaning more towards the intel (but still undecided) and I like the ATI 5870's ( I also like the nvidia GTX 470's) but leaning more towards ati...


would I have any problems with the ati on an Intel?

No problems, they play well together. Intel would be in for a legal world of hurt if they artificially limited compatibility like that. Also remember that nVidia is becoming just as big as a competitor to intel as AMD (chipsets, mobile device chips, super-computer processing, etc).
