Between the two, it is a no brainer. Get the 940. Next IMO you use an amd chipset board for an amd build and an intel chipset board for an intel build.

When you use third party chipset boards ie nvidia, sis, or via, you are asking for problems.
Nvidia makes fine video cards; their motherboard chipsets.... that is another matter.
