So i own an old Asus P8z77-v Lx mobo with an i5 3470 non k cpu in it, and im gonna upgrade to a 1050ti most likely the mini zotac one as its the cheapest ''https://www.amazon.co.uk/Zotac-GeForce-1050Ti-Mini-Graphics/dp/B01M8M5T4T/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=gtx+1050ti&qid=1602413170&s=electronics&sr=1-1'' and i'm wondering will i need a bios update to run it? i've looked at the bios update section on their page ''https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/P8Z77V_LX/HelpDesk_BIOS/'' and im on bios version 1502 which just includes better system stability. Will i be able to just run it out of the box and have it work or if it dont work out of the box will it most likely be a bios update thats causing it not to work? Theres only one bios update at all that specifies ''Enhance compatibility with some PCIE devices. '' Which is the 1801 version. So i just want to make sure if thats a possibility if it doesn't work as i've seen some threads about these old p8z77 mobos not working with certain gpus that are just plugged in.Thank you
