Do I need to do any BIOS update if I upgrade my processor to i5-3570k with 0XR1GT MOBO?

I currently have a DELL Inspiron 660 with a processor of i3-2100 and a 0XR1GT MOBO
I want to upgrade to that specific processor because I don't want to spend a lot on an old PC (Or is the max i5-3570?).

Thanks in advance!

Officially, it's the i5-3450 .

You may get the i5-3570 to work, but not the i7-3770.

3450 is the easy answer based on what I see. Better CPUs may work or be able to be made to work, but that is the official answer that I see.
