Upgrading the BIOS on my Aspire 5532 after WIN 10 install. Necessary?

I'm just wondering after installing Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire 5532, do I need to update the BIOS?  I also intend to upgrade the Ram to 8 Gigs and the processor from the TF-20 to a TL-60.  So, if it's not necessary to upgrade the BIOS yet, at which point should I?

    Only update the BIOS firmware as a last resort to try to solve a serious problem the regular drivers don't seem to fix. BIOS updates carry substantially more risk of bricking or causing serious side effects than regular driver updates. A general rule of thumb is don't try to update drivers and firmware on a functioning machine Jack E/NJ
