Default flashing bios question

when u get a new mobo, right out of the box, never used, do u really need to flash ur bios? i got my epox and i didnt, all i did was install the drivers for the onboard lan.

if it was up to me, my sound system would be worth more then the latest and greatest comp.

-Gigabite 880 mobo
-AMD FX -8350 Black edition
-Kingston Hyper X 16gigs
-Western Digital 1Tb HD
-GeForce GTX 660Ti
-thermaltake 850watt psu
-logitech Z-55oo speakers

no need to flash unless you need to.
when you buy a new board,it will have the first release bios.
the longer the boards been out,the more likely you will have to flash.
you can look at the bios page and see if anything aplys to you,but if everything is running alright you dont need to flash and shouldn't.
