    Hi all,
    I have only just discovered the thread about flashing the bios of the gf
    5900 to the 5950. I appreciate that to a lot of you my question my be old
    news but...from what I've read people are flashing using the leadtex 5950
    ultra bios. Am i right in thinking that some peeps are flashing non leadtek
    cards with this bios?
    What I'm considering doing is flashing my Aopen 5900 (standard not the LX or
    whatever) using the leadtek 5950 bios. Naturally I'll save my old bios first
    in case it goes pear shaped...but I am 'reasonably' safe to try this OR will
    flashing a different brand bios kill my card?
    Appreciate your time in responding.

    An Ultra is merely an overclocked version of the regular card. Flashing a
    BIOS would simply make it operate by default with the higher clock and
    memory speed, which it probably couldn't handle. Just use regular
