Can a motherboard bottleneck gpu performance?

Hello, im thinking of buying a 6950, and a while back I bought a cheap mobo, Biostar A870. I was wondering if it would effect my performance. I dont ever plan on going Crossfire with this mobo.

Current Specs if it matters..

Windows 7 64-bit

Gskill Ripjaw 1333mhz 2x2 gb

Biostar AM3 A870

AMD Phenom x4 955 3.2ghz

Seagate Barracuda 300gb 7200.8

ATI Sapphire 5770 1gb

Antec Neo HE 500w

...thanks :)

  2. thanks, good to hear because I dont plan on overclocking either. Id hate to spend 250 and not have the full use of it.
