Default chipsets... what do they do?

i am wondering what the nforce chipset purpose is?

edit*

chipset: The chip or chips on a motherboard containing various functions supporting the CPU.

does the chipset have anything to do with what you see on screen while playing a 3d game? If installing a wrong chipset(intel chipset>nforce board) will this have any effect on the display/video card?

i remember long ago i installed a wrong chipset but overwrote it with the correct nforce chipset.

Would the wrong chipset effect a bloom effect in a video game? Only the bloom , nothing else ?

so i shouldnt be worried about a "bloom effect" problem since i assume that is only a display driver, graphics card issue.

i installed an intel chipset for an nvidia nforce mobo long ago but i re-installed the correct chipset right after that with no computer problems. I assume they wouldnt be compatible with eachother since they are 2 different manufacturers.
