Risk updating bios
On the other hand, we have previously covered why you shouldn’t generally update your hardware drivers, although gamers will definitely want to update their graphics drivers. BIOS updates will not make your computer faster, they generally won’t add new features you need, and they may even cause additional problems.You should only update your BIOS if the new version contains an improvement you need. When you power your computer on, your BIOS takes control, starting the power-on self test (POST) and passing control over to the boot loader, which boots your computer’s operating system.
If your computer is working properly, you probably shouldn’t update your BIOS.
Does anyone know whether or not it would be necessary to proceed with this BIOS upgrade (to A11) to support the proposed graphics card upgrade?
( nvidia GTX 7xxx series or AMD R9 ) If yes, has anybody successfully managed to update their BIOS from A02 directly to A11 without raising the BIOS version incrementally, to A03, A04......
I am interested in upgrading my Graphics cards to GTX7xx series card or perhaps AMD R9 series however I have read in various threads that in order to do this I would need to update the motherboard BIOS to the latest version A11.
I am wary of BIOS upgrades as I work in IT and have witnessed several bricked motherboards from various manufactures as a result of BIOS upgrades, so I would rather not risk an attempt to upgrade my PC unless it is absolutely essential.
