    680 and 770 are physically the same with only difference being bios.

    770 has GPU boost 1.0.

    @OP that should be all you need command wise..

    Be sure to disable GPU adapter in device manager so driver is not interfering.

    Make a backup of your current BIOS on the card, just incase it fails, and use the latest version of nvflash for windows if you intend to flash within windows.

    and when did this, it worked pretty well, but you might experience some crashing because not all 680 cards can run at the speeds of 770, so you might need to downclock the card if you experience any crashing.

    the bios you linked above looks fine to use aswell.

    I went ahead and simplified the file name, named as agent-a01 suggested 770.rom, but nvflash still think i am using a command that does not exist.

    I see you using 64 on the end of the nvflash file name

    When I flashed my 980 I used this

    Maybe try a different version of nvflash

    Found an old version of nvflash 5118, but this one seemed to work, but the firmware i am flashing requires a newer version of nvflash. so i will dig around and look for a bit newer one.

    Found one that worked version 5164, flashed the bios successfully, now to reboot and see if it worked.


    Edit: So yea few things to report, the card is still working (thankfully), the card does not seem to work on the bios now but that's not a huge deal. Gpu z still reads it as a GTX 680 for some reason. I will do some benchmarks and post em.
