if you are not used to or knowledgeable of flashing bios my advice would be:
-Take a look at the Bios Update notes. If it specifically lists a issue you are having or says that its a critical update, then yes, update them.
-If you are not experiencing any of the issues it fixes, then I wouldn't worry about it, as a bios flash is potentially risky and will likely not solve your issue.
Depending on the method you use, its usually rather safe to do though. I personally prefer flashing via USB stick.
In regards to your issue, when your games hang, is it when you first launch the game or peridodically during play?
Its possible, the delay is when accesing the HardDrive for DATA. If that is the case, doing a system clean up with something like CCleaner, delete the contents of the TEMP folder, and then defrag your HardDrive may improve performance.
