can i use my agp XFX 6800 GT bios to flash my PCI-E XFX 6800 GT

i think the PCI-E GT i bought is some funny pre release version as the pcb is blue and comes with a 2 slot backplate but only a single slot cooler and 3dmark 03/05 cant decect the clocks properly but with other PCI-E 6800's the clocks are detected fine

thanks

I wouldn't suggest using an AGP BIOS on a pci-e!

My pci-e XFX 6800 GTs show a BIOS of 5.40.02.36.09, and seems fine in 3D Mark 05. Which BIOS does yours have?

No don't flash your AGP with a PCIE or vice versa. It will give you a card that will no longer function as it should!

Both came in the x-shape. Newest card has ver.2.0 on the outside box sticker.

Mine is a blue PCB and came with a v1.2 on the box.... Box is also a XFX Gear box, not the big X shaped box.

Whats with all these different versions already of a new card.

anyone know the difference's?

Yeah, different bios revisions for one thing.

My boxes were the X shaped ones, and say "ver. 1.2". What are the differences in BIOS? I thought everyone said that they had the 5.40.02.36.09 BIOS.

Hmmm......Well, one of my two cards had a different bios version which I flashed to the 5.40.02.36.09 BIOS. I assumed it to be true of all versions 1.2
