    nVIDIA chipsets on motherboards


    Been told to be wary of motherboards having nVIDIA northbridge/southbridge chipsets. Has anyone here had any significant problem using Phenom II X6 processor on nVIDIA based board? Always heard this brand had best graphics cards for Linux, so thought nVIDIA was way to go for everything.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Besides video cards, nVidia also designs/builds/sells ARM (Tegra) CPU's, motherboard chip sets, etc. I personally have not had any experience with these other products, but I do like their video hardware, which I use exclusively these days. I have nVidia video hardware in both of my laptops as well as my workstation.

    I have a Nvidia 610MCP motherboard, the only problem i have in linux is that it cannot record audio, all the rest is fine.

    Assuming you are using the ALSA drivers for the board's audio, it should also handle the input port as well as the output. You don't indicate which distribution+version+desktopUI you are using.

    I didn't dig very deep but it seems like a lot of folks are doing okay with this setup.
