What can I flash my 8800gtx's BIOS in Windows with?

I just want to flash it to another BIOS version not using a writable disk of any type and as easily, reliably, quickly as possible.

I dont think thats possible, my card was a stock 8800GTS 640MB 500MHz\1.6GHz ..... i took the bios of a 8800GTS 640MB (KO.ACS³)(Rev 02), edited the speeds to 626MHz\1458MHz\1.8GHz and flashed my card with that! ... runs a treat .... I used NiBiTor v3.4a to edit the bios, nvFlash v5.50 & a floppy disc to flash the card from boot! ... as far as i know there is no way to flash straight from within windows!

What difference does it make if its from a bootable floppy? .... it takes like 2 -3 mins to do it from a floppy!

Thanks.

I had actually known about that way, and thought maybe there was a different way, b/c I don't really want to use nibitor.

There's an nvidia firmware update utility that would be what I'm looking for, but it goes up to only 7900 series (the latest version on guru3d's website.) Has anyone seen one for the 8800 series?

I flashed both my cards while in Sli configuration, under Vista64 even, using Winflash5.53 and NiBiTor3.4a.

You CAN flash your BIOS on the video cards.

jakup did it. I think. He knows.
