So i'm planning on buying a new cpu and motherboard in maybe 2 months. Will a gigabyte b450 aorus m require a bios update for the ryzen 5 3600? If so do i need a ryzen cpu to flash the bios or is there a different way

More than likely, the motherboard would require a BIOS update in order to use a 3rd generation Ryzen processor (F40). I don't see anything that states you can upgrade the BIOS without an already compatible CPU.

I would think so.
From the statement on Microcenter web site some on their shelves are ready.

If buying from a online retailer you have no way of telling say the born on date or the date of manufacture unless stipulated or advertised as 3000 or 3rd gen ready.

Giving more time lets bugs get fixed and reviews to start to coming out plus your
Money to spend grow.

I waited till late September to rebuild to the 2600x and asus rog strix x470 f gaming and G.skill flare x 3200 cl14 b-dies
very glad i did wait, as i have had no issuse's.
