Just wanted to ask if there would be any negative impacts If I was to use something like a FX8320 with an entry level mobo like the M5a78l-m lx v2?

I am trying to make a cheap build for photoshop but would like to save as much as possible but don't want the motherboard to be a bottleneck(If something like that even exists)

Thanks

performance wise at stock clocks, no. U cant rlly overclock much with that board, as for its lower quality, but everything at stock with a gpu and cpu, and ram shouldnt have an issue
