Do I need to worry about the warning on the site?

Warning! Some AMD B550 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vermeer CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.

b550 boars should work with 5000 series ryzen chips out of the box

 

just checked the msi website. 5600x is supported

 

if you want to spend closer to 600usd, you can opt for a board thats a little more towards the higher end.

What would you recommend? Also does the B550 board support 30 series GTX cards as well as my 10 series?
