Can I Update the bios of a mobo for 2nd gen CPU when My CPU is 3rd gen
Hi.. So I'm trying to build a new gaming computer, I'm not really hardcore gamer but I want something where I can play decent games. I got almost all the pieces except for the motherboard... you might be wondering what's the big deal.. ?
I Bought a CPU Intel i7 3770 which is 3rd generation Ivy bridge.. 22 mm The problems with all the mobos I can afford is that they need to get their BIOS updated so I can use this CPU, I don't have a 2nd gen CPU to do that.. Is there a way to update the bios without having a 2nd gen CPU? or even just using the 3rd gen CPU? Maybe not even having a CPU at all and update only using a flash drive?
This are the mobos Im considering:
ASUS P8P67M REV3.0 GIGABYTE Z77-D3H Gigabyte Z68a-d3h-b3
I really appreciate your help, if you suggest any other cheap mobo I could use would be also welcomed, Thanks in advance!
