When you do that it is called the "Scorpius Platform"
As far as advantages I think it was just made to "Go" together
Maybe making it perform better by the components being tailor made for each other?
(Please correct me if I am wrong)
Its a gimmick
AMD started it when thay bought ATI
It started with the "spider" wich was a phenom cpu with 4800 series gpu's then came the "dragon" Phenom II and 5800 gpu's. So its not that their tailor made for each other it just when you own and sell both cpu and gpu's your going to try to keep the comp out.

Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
