don't. Only reason why I'd update the bios is a) if you want to increase the voltage or b) something is messed up in the bios and the vid card doesn't work like it should.

"If it ain't broken don't fix it"

Yeah the only reason to flash your video card bios is to overclock it. Which can be pretty risky. Go to this site if you want to learn more about it
