    Just recovered my 5870 from a bad bios flash using a pci 9200. It was my first time i think anyone who is into flashing should have an old pci vga card just in case.. :)

    what people without legacy pci slots do in a similar situation? I'm just curious does anyone know?

    I like blind flashing myself, challenging and just a little scary, only done it once but it did work!

    flash with a pcie card then, if your board has 0 pci and 1 pci-e slot only then you need to take it to another pc
