Since the MSI 970 Gaming mobo just came out, wouldn't it be prudent to not purchase it since it's a new product? Sorry if it's a stupid question, but I've always been warned against buying new products. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the R9 270X looks to be nearly $30 more? Is that because a discount just ended?

Also, there's this message at the bottom: "Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs." Is this a concern?
