Question Foxconn Nforce 590 based Motherboard with ATI Video Card???Will it work?

The question is that I've been very curious about is if a ATI video card would work on a nforce based motherboard. I dont plan on going crossfire but just 1 pcie x16 ati video card, perhaps the 1800xt. Any help would be great , thx!

Yeah, it will. The chipset doesn't determine the type of GPU you can use.

That is a good mobo. Nothing obviously bad that I see about it.

Some of the aftermarkets might, but a normal stock cooler will be good.

mobo looks fine to me, although I do not like foxconn either. But that is just preference. i would go with intel if you are planning a new build.

Psst . . . I'll let you guys in on a secret. Foxconn manufactures many Intel motherboards.
