Intel Nvidia Buyout? Good or Bad ?

Since AMD and ATI jumped into bed together, rumours of a similar move by Intel towards nVidia have run rampant. Though totally unconfirmed in any official way by either party, the buzz is strong enough that to have influenced nvidia's stock prices. Clicky for more detail on that.

Stock prices etc aside, is this actually a good thing ?? It could be good from a competition point of view, but would have its downsides too.

Having a diversity when choosing system components was good(though can result in headaches too) On the other hand, the potential for graphics hardware to achieve optimum performance standards also increases...

what do others think ?? I'll use this thread to keep tabs on this story...though at this stage it is definitely still a "strongish" rumour
