Currently have a Ryzen 3 3200G on a ASUS Prime A320M-K and want to upgrade to the Ryzen 5 3600 and was wondering if I would need to update the BIOS or not as they are both the 3000 series

I would update the BIOS to Version 5602 to be sure you get the best performance and RAM compatibility with the 3600.

Possibly no but do it anyway as later BIOS's provide noteable benefits for third gen CPU's.

Also do a CMOS reset after updating.

And also uninstall the video drivers...assuming you used the 3200g iGPU. Doing it with DDU to clean up is a good idea too.
