My new rig is up and running, but when i went into bios it's still the old school bios we've had forever, though i know my board supports a gui based click/touch bios. Having never tried updating a bios before and surprisingly google didn't turn up anything to explain it to me, firstly do i/should i update it? and secondly how?

This should be your motherboard. You can pull the BIOs update off the Giga-byte website. There is also a software Touch Bios that you can install from the website too. Just go to download > utility for touch bios or bios for your bios update. If you're unsure about what to do, I recommend letting Giga-byte's software do the work for you. Make sure you save your own bios setting first [should be an option for that in the software] Hope this helps.

I would stick with what you have, you did not metion the type motherboard but updating you BIOS will not change it to EFI.

Thanks wintermint, I'm just not super confident in something I've never done before.

@anonymous1- Sorry the mobo model was in the title, it's a gigabyte z68x-ud7-b3. I should really update my sig with my rig details.

Yes you can download the Touch Bios from the download section [mentioned that] and have it do the dirty work for you haha.

Your Gigabyte board likely already has the newest BIOS version. The "Touch BIOS" is actually a Windows program that mimics a real UEFI BIOS. They haven't yet transitioned to a GUI-based BIOS, and we don't know when they will.
