I believe I am on the original BIOS 207. If I am making the UEFI jump to Windows 8 which BIOS is best

I have the G75VW.

DO NOT UPGRADE!!!! Last time I upgraded the BIOS, my mobo got fried and I was waiting for 3 weeks for the laptop to get repaired. Win 8 can run on any BIOS the G75 can offer.

There is no benefit to upgrading. Version 207 and 210 will work well with Win 7 and WIn 8 and are actually better as they are unlocked for overclocking. All other version are locked.

Yep and quite a few NB have been bricked using the Win flash program. If you are going to update your BIOS, Use the Ezflash built into the bios. I myself have updated to Version 210 I did that several months ago and I haven't seen any reports of any further updated BIOS that improves any thing for me. I have seen lots of problems with people having problems using WinFlash and the later updated BIOS's. Of course you have to make these decisions for your self

One day you will find out mate, one day. I was the same naive person like you until my 1100 euro laptop broke down from the stupid BIOS update. Then I was left with nothing... Thanks to my boss I got a laptop from work to use while my ASUS was in repair. If it wasn't for him I would be in the complete darkness of network non-connectivity for 3 months, as I do not live in my home country and I could not find another replacement.

I've already upgraded once to Windows 8, but a game i play alot will not run under W8. However, I was running MBR partition tables.

Follow Rewben (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=) upgrade notes, you most likely wont go wrong. Several Games are not compatible with Win 8, I don't think BIOS has anything to do with that?

if you are running normal, you don't need update, but you want to update i suggest you are using ezflash to update.
