Sequential BIOS update Requirement?

I am going to purchase a new Asus Striker Formula MB. When I looked on Asus's website for drivers, etc. - I noticed that they have MANY versions of the BIOS.
The question I have, is do you have to install all the versions along the way, or can you merely jump to the latest version and expect it has all the upgrades?
Should I even bother updating the BIOS?
Thanks in advance for your time. I'd rather not screw this up.

    Usually the latest, unless it's a beta or are known to have problems. Try googling those version numbers first and see if others have ran into problems.
  2. ^agreed, the latest is usually fine to go straight too. I have seen mentioned in the details or in BIG RED WRITING... that certain version BIOS cannot update from this version, but its very rare and usually duely noted by the manufacturer
  3. Thanks, you guys! I really appreciate your answer. :)
