Intel to buy NVidia

AMD is buying ATI (the Canadian graphics chip manufacturer) and now Intel is rumoured to be buying NVidia.

NVidia makes high performance chipsets for motherboards (their NForce range) which currently get the best peformance out of AMD CPU's.

Intel make their own graphic chipsets, but they have always been considered low-end and underpowered. The purchase of NVidia would give them a boost in this area, and also may hurt AMD in the process.
