i've heard that some boards still have an old bios etc, and when they put some of the newer cpus in them, they dont work, so people had to get a crappy AMD to socket it in while they DL'd the updates for the BIOS to run the new ones.

Now i wanted to know, if i got the:
Asus M4A79XTD-EVO AMD Mainboard - 4x DDR3 / 6x Sata Raid / 1x IDE / Gigabit Lan

and put in it:
AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 965 3.40GHz 8MB Cache (AM3) - Black Edition




Will i have problems? I dont have another AMD CPU to use to get the updated BIOS, chip or whatever, so i wanted to know before i bought the Phenom II X4 965 if im going to have that problem?

Here are the complete spec for people wanting to know:

Western DigitalCaviar Green Pwr 1TB 7200RPM 32MB SATA 3Gbs
LG GH22NS50 SATA DVD Re-Writer (22x - Black)
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit DVD - OEM
Antec Two Hundred - Black ATX Tower Case
Corsair DDR3 4GB PC-12800/1600 (x4) CMG4GX3M2B1600C7 Ram
Asus M4A79XTD-EVO AMD Mainboard - 4x DDR3 / 6x Sata Raid / 1x IDE / Gigabit Lan / AM3
Corsair TX-650 650W ATX Power Supply
AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 965 3.40GHz 8MB Cache (AM3) - Black Edition
