Any order it shouldn't matter the bios doesn't need updating straight away (also don't use the automatic update utilities they have a habit of cancelling halfway leaving you in bios limbo)

I generally start winupdate then try and find and install as many drivers as possible until winupdate asks to restart repeat until finished

It is always a good idea to update the chipset drivers first. Then video. Then you can move on from there.
