Your graphic card probably need an upgrade also, here is the driver down load sites:

ATI:
http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/drivers.aspx

NVIDIA:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

When you are downloading drivers and software some of the files are compressed, use this program to unzip the file:
http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

If you have trouble to find the main boards number and type
use this small program:
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

When upgrading your BIOS you have to be 1000% sure it is the right one.
Flashing the mainboard with a wrong bios will destroy your system.
DO NOT upgrade it, unless there is a reason to do it.

Hope this will help you.
