    they are both made to standards... ergo they should work properly... :)

    many people use 9500/9700/9800 series cards with nforce2 cards..

    I, on the other hand, am not as wealthy as "many people"

    however, I use a radeon 8500 and an asus Nforce motherboard (nforce 1, not 2) and it works flawlessly, just make sure all drivers and everything are updated.

    its not a question about wealth...

    when the agp 8x standard came out many mobo manufacturers did not implement the standard properly... since ati were shipping their r300 based 9500/9700 series @ the time.. people quickly blamed ati... even though ati had done nothing wrong :)

    the incompatability issues were entirely the fault of the mobo makers... and ati took the first step to rectify it by releasing boards with capacitors to regulate the voltages better on the faulty mobo's... later bios updates and fully compatible boards were released... thats what this pertains to :)

    its not a question of wealth... :D

    all I meant by the "wealth" crack was that I can vouche for it working on older chipsets/ati cards

    it should... agp 8x was not a standard then :) and the problems only arose during its adoption...
