Default Motherboard to Graphics Card Compatability

I'm considering buying the ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM motherboard, and I'm wondering if there will be any compatability issues with a Nvidia Geforce GTX 560.

I read something about the motherboard having to have a Nvidia chipset... Any elaboration/explanation?

Thanks for any help!

Default Re: Motherboard to Graphics Card Compatability

The chipset doesn't determine what graphics cards will work with a certain motherboard, the slots do.

The board doesn't need to have an nVidia chipset to run a nVidia card.

However, the type of chipset can determine if you are capable of running an SLI or Crossfire setup.
