    So I have a Sapphire with the R360 core and I'm thinking about flashing the BIOS. I'm not sure what brand or speed the memory is, I can check later. If I do flash I curious which BIOS should I use? There are lots listed for this card but I'm not sure if I should flash to the same BIOS or try something like an XT BIOS. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    That's what I was thinking but is there a problem using a BIOS that was meant for a card with 256 MB RAM on a card with 128 MB RAM?
