Once again, ECS has offered a real cheap and value prices of motherboards for AM3 socket processors with ECS MCP61M-M3 series, it's not a premium motherboard from ECS but still worth to buy and it's looks still good for limited budget computers user. While many of AM3 motherboard comes with AMD chipset, NVidia with GeForce chipset looks can't fight with their rival, the performance and also the variant of NVidia chipset for AM3 motherboard is not so great as AMD chipset (overall), and I just found a little bit of NVidia chipset motherboards in the market. Today, we will see one of the NVidia chipset motherboards and it has supported for AMD processors with AM3 socket, so check this out.

ECS MCP61M-M3 has comes with cheap of prices, simple motherboard layout but still great.
Powered by NVIDIA GeForce6150SE/nForce430 integrated chipset, ECS MCP61M-M3 supports for AMD Phenom II processors, the motherboard also uses dual channel memory mode for better bandwidth, there is something special from MCP61M-M3 motherboard, yes the motherboard has supported for unlock hidden AMD CPU core, so you can try to use it when you buy a Athlon II X2, Athlon II X3 or another AMD Phenom II variant.
