Don't ask how to over-clock.

Hi!

I'm planning to buy a new processor, which'll be "Athlon II X4 620 AM3 2.6GHz 2MB Cache 45nm Processor." I'll use it with a "Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD3P" motherboard.

I've looked at Gigabyte's website and saw that this motherboard does not natively support Athlon II X4 AM3 cpus. It requires a BIOS update. Now, my question is; will I be able to boot the computer at all, so as to install that BIOS update? Or will the computer be unable to boot as it doesn't recognise the cpu?

Thanks in advance :)
