You didn't really answer my question. Unless you are having problems with your card, there is absolutely no reason you need to change your bios.

Actually, from time to time, I get a certain ~2 seconds of lapse which ends after hearing a *click* sound from within the case. I was about to go mad when an update of video drivers had instantly flushed the problem away.

Yet, after re-formatting, using newest drivers now, I still have the same issue and considering how it resolved before, I'm intrigued about my video card.

That's the story.

Are you sure it's your video card? What else is in your system?

I can't be sure but regarding the sheer fact that updating my video drivers had solved it, I could only assume so.

My rig is composed of:

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R
Intel Core i7 920
2 GB Corsair DDR3 RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB
Seagate and Samsung SATA HDDs of varying volumes
OCZ Stealth-x-treme 700W PSU

Oh and Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit for OS.

Be more clearer..? You want an updated BIOS version so your BIOS is all up-to-date ...Or do you want one just to mess around with and to reach higher Clock values? And by updating your video drivers has solved what?
