    Flashing G -Card BIOS

    Hi there, i just want to confirm this before i go ahead and do it. I bought 2x BFG 7800 GT's a couple months back and there giving me a few probs, i have noticed that the two have different bios versions. I want to flash the card with the old version to same same version as the new card, the thing is i can't find a download for the bios, so if i do this will it work.....

    1. Use NVFlash and make a backup of the Bios on the card with the new version(use this backup on the old card)...

    2. Use NVFlash and make a backup of the Bios on the card with the old version (incase something goes wrong)....

    3. Then use NVFlash to flash the backup bios i made from the new card, onto the old card.

    Is this correct? Also when making the backup copies, does it matter what i name the files, ie can i say -b oldbios.bin (for the old card) and -b newbios.bin (for the new card)?

    I do realise that flashing the bios runs a risk of permantly damaging the card and will also void my warrenty.

    Thanks, any help will be appreciated

    Sounds good in theory... maybe check if both cards are different PCB revisions as well? Cos maybe the newer BIOS won't work on the older PCB? Just a thought.
