Hello,

I am looking at purchasing these computer components (just got the GPU), however it is telling me that I will need to update the bios? And I am very unsure what this means. Is it a difficult process for someone with limited technical ability?

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Kk4yLP IS the parts list, is there anywhere I can save a bit of money from?

Alternatively I could go with this build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/J8kFYg

Although I am trying to save a bit of money on both.

For the 5600X you need to update bios to the F10 version (the latest one) https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B550-AORUS-ELITE-rev-10/support#support-dl-bios
When you buy the motherboard,go to your local pc shop and ask them if they have a Ryzen 3000 series cpu available,since you will need it to update the bios for the 5600X.
And no dont go with 3900X if you are only gaming.
The 5600X is better for gaming.
Thanks I'll definitely go with the 5600x then. Unfortunately I'm in lockdown till mid Feb and hoping to get this up and running in a few weeks. Is it viable do you think to ask the retailer selling the mb to do the BIOs update for me, if I specify which update etc?

Also are there any cheaper mobos you could recommend? Thanks
