I have been thinking of flashing my 6800 GT PNY bios to a newer pny bios because I heard you can overclock higher with this new bios. I have also heard that 90% of 6800 GT's cannot be flashed back to the origional bios. Has anyone flashed to the newest pny bios? and have you noticed a performance increase? is it worth it?

'thanks

I've had no problem in editing my bios.
I have a BFG GT.

I have not tied using a BFG 6800Uoc bios though.
I see no need in it when I can change my volts and clocks
and use the stock bios. :)

▄▌▄ ∑, how exactly do you say your name?

Sorry for the OT, ive just never (ever) seen characters like that used for someones name (or anywhere else besides garbled code). Its kinda cool :)

BTW, I had to copy and paste that to even address you :D

Read this thread. It's a nice read.
In there is how to use Omniextreme
to edit your stock bios.

Also use the search on the board.
There are a few other thread
here and there on it.

is there any way to do that without having to flash my bios?

No, since you have to actually change the BIOS then re-program your card in an attempt to recognize the changes. If your card is performing well, attempting such a task is not necessary. Plus there are no guarantees that it would work for your specific card. But if you want to risk ending up with a $500 paperweight, by all means, go right ahead.
