Default Re: 5900 flash to 5950?

yes, it's possible, especially if it's a 5900 ultra you'll have a good success-rate, but if you can just overclock to 475/950 then it won't matter if you flash it, flashing will just set the default speeds to that and raise the vcore, which i wouldn't do if i were you. while it probably will work fine, it will shorten the life of the card, if you can overclock, then go ahead and do it, but don't flash unless you really "need" to get the high clock speeds

btw wrong forum for this, but doesn't really matter to me
