If the north bridge on a motherboard is made by Nvidia does it have to have a Nvidia graphics card for it? And if not is there any performance advantage in pairing an Nvidia card with an Nvidia motherboard? I'm wondering because I prefer Radeon GPUs and I was wanting to build a system with a specific motherboard but it has a Nvidia north bridge and is an SLI board.

Shouldn't make any difference, all the northbridge chip does is conncet the CPU to the memory.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
