Default Re: Sparkle GeForce FX5600 corrupted in BIOS, worth flashing it?

HD3450 for $49.99 + shipping. It'd smoke that FX5600. Not sure what you use the rig for, but if the FX5600 was sufficient than I guarantee the 3450 will do the job.
I've already replaced the card with a PNY GeForce 6200 I had in the spares pile. Just wondering if it was worth trying to flash it, or if the card is beyond any hope.
