I was on pc part picker and it said they may not be compatible
It said: Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs. So is it compatible or not? I live in Australia and the price for the whole build is $961. Here is the whole build:
This computer is going to be used for gaming by the way.

Hope you can help :)

as long as it has newer bios on it you should be fine. it when the mb has the older bios on the mb that you need an older cpu to update the mb. before you buy the mb call the store or email pre sales support tell them you need a mb with the newer bios file on it.

ASRock 970 Extreme3 does not support the use of the FX-8320.

970 Extreme3 R2.0 is compatible.
