Just got my powercolor 7870 GHz edition with the vortex ii cooler, yayy :D .
I decided to also get an Asrock 990fx extreme3 and an AMD fx-6300 processor.

Will I have to update the BIOS on this motherboard for my processor to be 100% supported?

Try it. If it posts, then the answer is no. If you check under "cpu support" and only one bios file is listed, then you should be fine.

I guess since BIOS "p1.20", my chip is supported. I have no idea what BIOS update the board will be on out of the box though.

your chip is supported since BIOS P1.40. Its release date is July 5th this year. there's a good chance that by now all 990 FX mobo's are shipping with vishera support out of the box.
