Default Bad V_BIOS checksum in xorg.log

Can anyone tell me how bad this is? It's from a recently bought 6800 GT.

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Bad V_BIOS checksum

Is it possible that the BIOS has been flashed on the card?

That's certainly possible. I guess if it is a second hand card or so someone has played with the clockspeeds / number of active pipelines and perhaps also voltages. The tools that can be used for bios editing, can forget to recalculate the checksum.
