 What BIOS do have now? What you have in your sig is not BIOS revision. See picture below to see what I mean. See where 1.D is the BIOS revision number in the 2nd line. Example is from my K8N Neo-F. The screenshot pic is from 'Everest' motherboard BIOS page.

 How are you trying to flash BIOS? Do not use 'Live Update'



 Edit: Do you have the 89W or the 125W version of that CPU? If you have the 125W you run the risk of burning out the CPU VRM MOSFETs. 125W CPUs are not supported on the K9VGM-V .
 2nd time today for me to give this warning.

 ADV6000IAA5DO  (89W)
 ADX6000IAA6CZ  (125W)

Leave BIOS alone, read here: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=103441.0
A new BIOS can't help with your issue.
Also never attempt BIOS update when you have stability troubles.




becuase games are choppy. Like WoW, tibia and such. And my computer shall make those games.

Do a new fresh OS installation, lower in game settings.
Switch to XP instead Vista.

Like said, if a problem isn't explicitely fixed by a BIOS update, don't.

Choppy video sounds like a problem with the graphics card driver.

But I did this week's guessing just in the other post, so please say:
What the BSOD say.
What game is choppy - say em all, please.
PSU is also very good to know.

 Whether you suck at computers or not has nothing to do with it. We are here to help each other out with solving problems and advice/warnings where needed.

 What makes you think a BIOS update will fix your problem? What you decribed does not look like a BIOS problem.

 Read this >> Forum USB BIOS flashtool << and >> motherboard & BIOS ID << Download & run this >> Central Brain ID << it will give you the OPN number of your CPU.
