    Why flash the BIOS?
    Just max the memory and upgrade the cpu to the most allowed specs of the motherboard.

    bios flashing , usualy does not bring much better performance, usualy its bug fixes and new hardware fixes

    Its the same thing mate.If its quite old i doubt you'll find a recent update.They're normaly bug, compatability fixes,or maybe extra features,not realy for direct performance.
