New Gigabyte 5870 issue and fix

    Just built a new system with a Gigabyte GV-R587UD-1GD and in 3D games
    it would flash to a blank screen (not blank really, lots of vertical
    stripes in different colors at different times). The fix was to
    download the Gigabyte VGA @BIOS utility and the new F8 BIOS (came with
    F7), and flash it to the newer BIOS.

    Was running with no overclock, all stock, but will now start messing
    with it.

    Works great so far!

    Holy shit a GPU vendor that releases BIOS updates! Have the same card was
    at F5 thanks for the heads up. Now to resist buying another one for Xfire
    from today's shellshocker for $180.
