Default Update NVBios

Hi !
I made up my mind to update the bios of my XpertVision 8500GT Super 512Mb.
But i do not know what bios I should choose

these are the specs for my card.

Default Re: Update NVBios

Seems like there is no VGA BIOS for your card available in this data base:
http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/i...CI-E&memSize=0

Since most custom designs are close derivatives (or even clones) from the
nvidia reference design, you may try out VGA BIOSes from other 8500GT cards,
but be warned that there is no guarantee that this doesn't results in physical
damage of your card or even the system. Also, make sure you have a plane
old PCI card around so that you can recover the old BIOS in case the new
BIOS doesn't do anything.

However, unless you have a serious problem with you current setup,
i wouldn't recommend doing a "foreign" BIOS update!

regards

Bernhard
