Is the Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 compatible with the AMD FX-8320 WITHOUT a BIOS update
I'm looking at building a new PC to replace my aging Dell one. I've elected to use an AMD FX-8320, due to it being within my budget. I am now wondering what motherboard to use. I am looking at a Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, however it appears that it does not support my CPU "out of the box" and requires a BIOS update first. However, this would be quite impossible for me, as I do not have another AMD CPU. Any ideas what I can do? Or if this motherboard is in fact suitable?
This is my first post, so help would be immensely appreciated.

If you buy a new Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, then it should be a rev. 3.0 which already supports the FX-8320.
Thanks a lot Yeah, I'll be getting a rev 3.0, so it should work, cheers
