  1. Hi all,

    I'm using a gigabyte socket 939 k8nf9 ultra rev 2, and am wondering if I should update the drivers? It runs fine, but wondering if I can improve game preformance with these... or should I leave it if it's stable? There are several drivers I can add... for sata, main, lan etc.

    I say Yes from your Gigabyte support drivers page.
    Not the BIOS update though.

    Updating the bios won't necessarily improve performance. You really don't have to update the bios for the mobo unless you install a really new piece of hardware which states to update. You failed to mention what hard drive you have as well as the RAM, processor and processor. All these components can severly hamper performance.

    Good point, as I said already no need to do that, on a running system.

    But you have prompted me to post this:

    Please put your System Specs in your Profile
    If you have a proprietory computer like Dell; HP; Acer etc, please manually write this in the mobo field (ie Dell Dimension 3100 - as an example)
