smart edition??? is that really what the SE stands for? lol. i thought it may be slim edition or slow edition. Anyway, to answer your question, we need the full specs of your PC, particularly monitor resolution and power supply make and model to help you decide what video card you should buy. I would chose the 460 se over a 5770 if you can afford it. We dont know if you should upgrade your BIOS as you havn't klet us know the make of your motherboard.

certain processors will run without a BIOS update, more specifically the C2 revision stepping if using a early BIOS.
I run 0601 BIOS, I should updated it but I'm good for now.
the newer phenom ii x6 processors will need BIOS updates but can run.
I do not however recommend the phenom ii x6 for a AM2+ board, I feel it's too restricting.
I suggest you look for phenom ii x4's like mine:
phenom ii x4 940 (3.0GHz) C2 revision 125-watt.

how can i know about my bios version number like you said that you are running 0601

find your system information and the info should be listed in there.
if using windows vista or windows 7 then click on start/ all programs/ accessories/ system tools/ system information
should have BIOS version and date.

how does your graphic card performs on games like gta iv,dirt and other heavy games
