Hello this is my first time posting here...

I'm in the process of looking for parts for my first computer build. I've decided on the FX6300 CPU, but I am unsure whether this motherboard will work out of the box:

I've heard about these new Piledriver CPUs requiring a BIOS update, but I do not already have a CPU to update.

It does, because the MB need the BIOS 1.60 to support the FX6300, and you can check the version 1.60 came out 10/18/2012. So when you buy the MB now it will be compatible with FX6300.
