If you buy the normal international version (GT-I8190/L/R), you won't have any problems rooting it and installing the ROM. However, if you buy a carrier-modified version, you won't be able to install that specific ROM, since it's not built for your device.

GXGOW is right. The best choice is to buy the international GT-I8190. Sure it comes with android 4.1.2, but that's not bad (i kinda preffer it over 4.2.2). And the GT-I8190 versions (normal ; L and N) are the most customisable ones and everything you'd want will work on them
Cheers for your amazing new phone if it's gonna be a GT-I8190 otherwise cheers for your new phone
