Mainboard chipset?

regarding v4 usage, the mainboard chipset should be the same hersteller as the processor(Intel) or the graphiccard(Nvidia) ?

more clearly:
if i have Intel core 2 processor, Nvidia graphicscard and must buy a mainboard, im checking thru the parameters in any buyers catalog for compatibility (socket,…) and under chipset, i can pick:

  • Intel (same as processor)
  • Nvidia (same as graphicscard)
  • Via (other)

will this choice affect vvvv performance?

most likely not. but you could check some gaming-benchmarks to see if there are certain combinations that score better.


You can try a Asus P5N32E-SLI wuth a NVIDIA™ nForce 680i SLI chipset
We use it on 3 workastations with vvvv with really good performances.

I would recommend to you a Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 to put on .

You can try Asus P5E3 Deluxe with x 38 which included DDR III support.It’s quite more expensive ;)

There 's the Intel® 975X chipset which seems to be performant too

Here is our config :

Power : Hyper 730 W
CPU : Quad Q6600 @ 2.7 Ghz
Mainboard : P5N32E-SLI
Ram : OCZ 2 x 1 Go PC 6400 HZ
GPU : 2 x XFX 8800 GTS 320Mo
HDD : Samsung Sata / Raptor 10k
Cooler : Noctua 9mm/12 mm ( Important to maintain low temp (40°) and good perfs and stability)
