    :)Hello there,

    I am a new member here. What a great forum you have here?
    I am going to flash my 8600GT VGA cards which are running as SLI in ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe. Is there any problems related to two graphic cards? Or it will be done in order?
    Or else?

    Thank in advance, :confused:

    if your flashing your bios you need to do each card individually...

    Thank for your quick reply. Do I need to take the second slot out and leave only first slot in to do it each reboot, don't I? Or Nvidia flash utility for windows has had the option to do that?

    Thanks :confused:

    If it were me I would take one card out (and blow out the heatsink, since it's outside of the case anyway), flash the card I left in, then take that card out and put the unflashed one in, clean out the flashed card... flash the unflashed card then throw both cards in. Great, two flashed cards with clean heatsinks.
