This build is for my brother, his first gaming PC, and I've spent a good 5+hrs just tonight going over everything and trying to keep it around $500 if not less. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nwTrt6
I understand that under the compatibility it states "Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs" so I checked a bunch of websites and it appears to only apply to retailers/merchants who sell outdated/older versions of the motherboard; anything else about that I might not know?
The motherboard selected says on its website that it has an easy overclocking software that comes with the motherboard, but I've heard from other sites and from a person on here under the "CPU Coolers" forum that if I decided to use that software that the selected motherboard would not be good. What do you think?
