Hi guys.
I don't know what to do.. should I buy the nVidia GT630 or ATI Radeon 6000 series (can't remember exactly) their prices and specification are pretty much the same, but I don't know if the nVidia card will work well since I got an AMD chipset..

CPU - AMD Athlon II X3 455 Processor 3.30 GHz
RAM - 4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665 MHz (9-9-9-24)
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Service Pack 1
Motherboard - ECS A780LM-M2 (CPU 1)
HDD - 466GB Seagate ST500DM002-1BD142 ATA Device (SATA)
Optical Drive - TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-222AB ATA Device
Audio - VIA High Definition Audio
Network - Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller

You can use any graphics card with any cpu....although some like to stick with a branded product line through out their system.

It should be completely ok if you use nVidia with the AMD CPU or vice

As bassfisher and Pc Geek noted, you can use either. The maker does not matter.

This is often confusing for many but the ATX Form Factor standard insures any card compatible with the motherboard's slots will work (assuming the PSU is able to support it).

Another common misconception is with the card's memory. Some folks see their motherboard with DDR2 RAM, for example, and the card they are considering supports DDR3 or DDR5 and they are worried about compatibility. Again, it does not matter.
