Default Updating Bios of a P5B

Hey,

So I got no idea what to do hey, lol
Got my computer in... mid march, haven't updated bios so it has whatever it came with. Wondering if I should be updating it or doesn't it make a difference.

And if I should be updating it, what do I have to do to update it, where do I get the bios from and which one? lol, mine is just the standard Asus P5B, no delux or anything.

Cheers,
Sydz

You should only update your BIOS if you theres something wrong, or you're having issues, with your current BIOS.
