I had this configuration, on an MSI k7n 420 pro. I had problems with the 
integrated chipset and X Windows. NVidia's drivers didn't help at all. I 
got it to work once, but after a HD crash, I had to reinstall all and 
NVidia's drivers just kept crashing and I could not get them working 
again (forgot the error message). Other than that, it works fine, and 
the morthboard is great (but remember, FANS). If you go this route, pick 
your self up a cheap MX440 based card ($99 in the states, don't know how 
much there), and you'll be set.
