Default Video Card Help

Ok, I am thinking about getting the ATI 3850 card for my new rig. Question: Will there be a performance decrease because I have an Intel chipset as opposed to AMD???

There will be no performance difference between using an Intel chip or an AMD CPU.

There's some nasty rumors running 'round saying that the ATI cards are optimized to run with AMD CPUs. It's not true. They run just as well on either system.
