Today we have it easy as pretty much all mainstream MOBOs that are targeted towards us natively supports everything.
The confusion comes from people thinking that only AMD video cards will work on AMD platforms. If they were still "ATi", then it wouldn't be confusing.
I've seen this many times before back before "ATi" became "AMD". For example, someone was only interested in Gigabyte video cards because they had a Gigabyte motherboard. When asked why they were only looking at Gigabyte video cards, they explained that they assumed that other video cards would be incompatible.
