    This topic has come up twice in the past few days, in short no you are fine.
    When the FX-x3xx series first launched existing boards required a BIOS update to support them. However, that was years ago. Current motherboards ship with the proper BIOS for the chips. It is an old warning in the system, no need for it anymore.
  2. thanks that helped a lot
  3. improved your build for $10 mate
    the aidos is loads better than the tx3
    the xfx psu is top quality ,you lose the modular aspect but gain on quality big time.
    Kendomen - upto you - best sub $60 case on the market though imo.

    a 280 for $10 more than a 370 is an absolute no brainer mate - far far better card - the 370 is weak in comparison.
