    I see you've fallen for the trend of wanting to flashing your video card's BIOS for no reason... lol.

    The only reasons to flash a cards BIOS are:

    1) If there's a mod to accomplish such as X800Pro VIVO to 16pipes or 9800Pro R360 to XT. *Note there are specfic requirements the card must meet when flashing from one to another.. of course not all cards can be flashed to something faster like some people seem to think*

    2) If there is a problem with the card and the manufacturer releases a new BIOS to correct the problem.
