Default BIOS & MOBO Drivers ?

Simple question. A friend of mine has a PC with 3 year old BIOS and MOBO drivers, I'm going to update them for him. Is it better to update the MOBO drivers first, or does the order make no difference?

Doesnt matter. You can do it in any order. I would do BIOS first though, but that is my preference. Seems like BIOS updates have more problems.
