I'm worried that the computer won't even boot up for me to update the BIOS.

Im pretty sure it wont need a bios update since its not a devils canyon cpu, other users correct me if im wrong. But that is not a good board to OC on.

Plz learn to google before you post. We are not asus support. They have a special page for that.

I'm sure I've seen a G3258 work without Bios Update on Asrock H81-HDS and it was oc to 4.6 Ghz Stable

So supposedly I think you won't need an update

Sorry, I'm new to building PC's and I really didn't know ASUS had one of those sites until you told me.

Still a valid question since its a new processor and teh websites just blanket list the generation.

I know the Gigabyte B85M-DS3H can run the G3258 even on old BIOS' without issue, maybe go for that board? It can also OC it very nicely. :) 

And Yingda, don't be rude. He came to the right place. It's hard to find info about this, even on their website.

Very good choice for a mobo , supports up to 32 GB of ram and I think has two pcie slots.

I like the motherboard you have chosen, with NewEgg's rebate I'm pretty sure I'll be getting this motherboard instead. Thanks for everyone who helped me you guys are awesome! :)

It is impossible to answer his question unless you know the current bios version, an information which cannot be obtain unless u bought the board/called asus support. All answers without this info will be estimations, not garanted.
Ps: I am not trying to be rude. Just want people to do their homework before asking a question. Better to teach a man how to fish then to give him a fish.
If he said that he does not have the board, thus not knowing the bios version and has already checked the asus site with no luck, Then I would happily tell him the the cpu will word sufficiently for a bios update. No need to worry

He can't be expected to know how to do everything. That's a reason why we're here. :) 
Please be as nice as you possibly can be.
He's chosen a board that will work regardless of BIOS version anyway.
