Hi, I'm currently planning to add an SSD and do a fresh install of Windows 7 onto that, should I update my BIOS before doing so? Looking at the BIOS information, it was last updated in 2010.

Also, looking at the ASUS download suite it lists several updates. Do I download and install them one by one or just download the most recent? In other words, does the most recent file contain all previous updates?

Finally, the latest BIOS update was on the 3rd of November and is apparently a Beta. Should I go for the one that doesn't say Beta or just go for the latest one anyway?

Here's the link if you want to see what I'm talking about:

Unless you are having any of the problems mentioned in the release notes for the new BIOS version, there's really no need to update the BIOS.
