Default BIOS update question.

Alright, I'm gearing up to update my badly outdated BIOS on this machine and I need to be sure of something before I go ahead. I'm aware flashing a BIOS is a pretty technical undertaking, and I don't feel like paying someone to do it for me so I'm going to try it myself. I have a better machine anyway, so if this falls through, meh.

I'm using Sandra 2005 to get a detailed view of my motherboard and so on, and it says the Motherboard Manufacturer is MSI, and for Chipset 1 it says it's VIA. So uh, which BIOS do I download and use? The motherboard BIOS, or the Chipset 1 BIOS? Could it be both?

It's the motherboard. Nevermind, I got it.
