To suggest that ati cards "work better", or as you put it, "have fewer issues" with amd cpu's is a myth; one we can't even call an urban legend because it hasn't been around long enough... in short, it's nonsense.

Cpu's don't "talk" directly to graphics cards; they communicate through the northbridge. If there are certain chipsets that have problems with ATI cards, we're all ears?
yes its a chipset thing, when ya put a ati card in a intel chipset you sometimes get issues, like wise when you put a ati card in a nvidia chipset, or a nvidia card in a ati one, so if your going with a amd based mobo your best off to get a ati card
...

I have to ask... just how exactly did you arrive at this conclusion?

amd phenom 965 3.4ghz
500w psu (might get 600w if its safer)
gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 motherboard
coolmaster case.

i keep chnaging my mind between them, they both have there adv and dis adv. the gtx 260 is better but the price here in the UK its 165 witch is alot. So if im going to get that i want it to be worth the money.
Whats the WEI rating to give me a rough idea how high it is?

here is the card btw

BFG GTX260 OC MAXCORE 55nm 896MB (D) Dual DVI PhysX and Cuda ready PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer
Same exact card I have. I think the WEI rating was around 7.9 or so with that card, but I'm not quite sure, I'll run it tonight, back to work for me

I think it might be more of a coincidence thing. I run an nvidia card with an ATI chipset/AMD Cpu and haven't had any issues.

So, to sum things up, this is all just speculation.

Nothing uses DX11 anyways, so it's a moot point at this time.

~Lordbob
And only a handful of games used DX10, and about 2 games used DX10.1, so it's all just about future proofing really.

DX11 is making great strides, by the end of the year at least 20+ games will be using it, major games such as AvsP. In 2011 many more games will move onto it. Mostly because of the generation gap, like with XP to 7.

dirt 2, grid 2 and bad company 2 use dx11.

They look great, but in all honesty, who has the time to notice when you're in the thick of it?
