Usually you only need to update the bios if you are having a problem. Does your board manufacturer recommend this update for windows 8?

BIOS updates are also available as OS independent meaning they will execute through DOS and are initiated by the BIOS itself so there's no need for an OS. like zdbc13 said it...update BIOS only if its recommended.

I personally do it quiet often(whimsically) but then mine is an Intel board and BIOS update is easy and BIOS versions are rock solid so I am never anxious about an update going wrong and bricking my mobo.
