Default Do I need to update the bios?

I recently bought a motherboard P5k-E/wifi, which comes with a bios revision of 1013. Asus website says my cpu, e8400, needs bios revision 0906.

1013 is a newer revision, from april 2008, 0906 is an earlier revision. So am I safe to assume that I don't have to replace 1013 with the 0906 revision for the e8400 cpu?

By the way, the asus tech told me that I would probably have to update my bios.

if the bios has the revision it needs to support the chip then you're fine, but its always good to get the latest bios updates.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
