Thats a great video card, but I doubt it can be flashed to anything else. Memory is not fast enough to flash to 5700 Ultra.

Only thing I would do is use Coolbits or NVTuner to overclock, thats about it.

I would use OmniExtremeEdit FX to mod the latest BIOS for higher core/memory clocks and perhaps even lower the memory latencies so that the card processes more info per clock cycle. Of course you can still use Coolbits and RivaTuner afterwards to gain even more performance.

You can rise easily the core clock to 500MHz and even higher but, with slow 3.6ns RAM (550MHz relative), you'll hit the wall at about 450MHz of core, save in some shader intensive games where a few extra MHz might help.
