Well, newbie here, has never been flash bios before,,guess it's time to flash the bios for the first time.
current configuation is in signature, eveything is stock, no OC, no modifi, no nothing, just the way I bought it. (EXCEPT for the graphic card,, changed stock HD4850 to GTX 560~~)

so, I wonder what should I do before flash my BIOS? I read some posts that flashing bios will cause my computer wont boot or something, any advise?

Since I never OC or do any changes to my 630, is that fine that I just download the bios update, and install it?
