Default What does this mean?

I'm Building a computer and i used pcpartspicker but it gives me this warning when i enter my build: "Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs" what does it mean exactly, and is it easy to get a 'BIOS update', im not exactly a computer expert.....
My build can be found here: AMD FX-6300, Asus Radeon HD 7770, Cooler Master K280 - System Build - PCPartPicker United Kingdom

It's easy to update the BIOS... only problem is that you need the computer to be working.
So you wont be able to update it unless you have a supported CPU laying around you can use until the BIOS has been updated
