From what I understand is that you only needs a BIOS update if the Mobo came out AFTER the 6300. So if you get a mobo that came out before the 6300, you should be good to go. And of course just double check your findings in review sections and online just to be sure.

At work so I can't really do much research. How does This look to you?

It's a bit on the more costly side being $88.99USD at the time of making this comment, but it shouldn't need a BIOS update, and if it does it has a feature to allow you to update the BIOS without a CPU installed.

...fx-6300...under £50 ish...

Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P and MSI 970A-G43 listed as not requiring any BIOS update. As with any budget model mobos, purchase locally if possible, in case exchange is required due to defect.
