i want flash this card with 8800gs bios
I don't see why you would want to...am I missing something???
I would assume that it may be possible, but I don't have enough experience with either cards, I'm more curious as to why you're inquiring if it's more than just a question.
If I were you, I'd try Google and see if others have tried this.
if you have the galaxy 9600gso overclocked you can flash it to 8800gts 512
Yeah I've heard of that one, which is hard to come by for US residents iirc, but going from a plain old reference 9600GSO to 8800GS...I just don't see why, afaik they're pretty much the same card.
yeah the only reason I can think of is if he already has another 8800gs and wants to sli...
It was only useful because I believe it was a 384MB GSO and they had all the memory pads populated with memory (For 512MB) and that flash enabled the memory to be addressed... other than that it is nothing that can't be done w/o rivatuner for the clock speeds
here is a good reason http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/11587/Gainward.8800GS.384.080107_1.html this bios is thes best :d look the clocks core 720 shaders 1780.00 memmory 1000 and if i flash it to my card i can overclock my card more
There's no reason whatsoever to believe flashing that bios would increase your OC.
It's a good chance you'll end up with a non-functional card as Gainward often uses custom board designs & non-standard bios'.
i have biostar 9600gso and i have flash it to galaxy 9600gso overclocked
I don't think you get it - flashing the bios will do nothing for you - as far as just inserting anothers standard bios w/ higher frequencies... this can be done at the driver level using nvidia's tools or rivatuner/derivative
i think you are wrong cause the new bios has another settings and voltages.with galaxy bios i can overclock more the memmory
