Does ECS force6100pm-m2 or Bio star MCP6PB M2 supports AMD Athlon II X3 425 cpu?or any other cheap mobo for the cpu without any bottlenecking the cpu?
 
Solution
Bottlenecking is an overused term oftentimes meaningless. You motherboard will not "bottleneck" a processor.

For CPU support you will have to check the manufacturer's website and check their CPU support for that particular motherboard. If it supports any Athlon II or Phenom II processors it will support that x3.

so no bottlenecking means i can pick any entry level motherboard for my athlon x3..actually some pc assembler told me that i should go for an expensive mobo else i will face problems like bottlenecking and low performance.

a mobo can't bottleneck a processor... its mostly the graphics card which does... so u can go ahead with the budget motherboards unless u are planning to use high end graphics cards...
