i would have to agree with psu and cooling, but this board can handle the 9000 series chips, albeit the headroom to overclock them may be less than a sabertooth or a rog board, this board can handle them with just a bios update to at least 1903. the only thing the cpu support page says is just special consideration for cooling.
but if you want to pay a premium for peace of mind and to have a higher quality board, than yeah an upgrade might warranted.
the real question is that should the OP even buy a 9590.... to get a higher binned chip to overclock it as much as it can go, on this board and considering the price to performance of this vs a decent 8350 may not be worth it...
at best you should probably run these chips at stock on the 990fx pro, and a much better cooling solution is needed to even run these chips in the first place. and i do see that he is already running the 8320, so the differences may not even be night and day, just a speed bump without the silicon lottery.
anyways i digress, a better psu and cooling is most definitely needed, whereas motherboard may not be. and the OP has to answer within himself is getting this cpu even worth it as it is currently $334 on amazon.... if clock speed and binning is worth that much to you and the premium price is not an issue, then fine its his money and he can do as he pleases. but consider getting the 9370 because it is $100 dollars cheaper and should be binned higher than a run of the mill 8350, and the $100 can be put to cooling this hot chip down.
