Default Video card bios update

I have the evga 8800gt superclock edition. Which Bios update do I download?

http://www.evga.com/support/drivers/...t.asp?switch=2

Also if I wanted to SLI with another 8800gt would it have to be the superclock edition or could I just get the normal 8800gt. Thanks

Now why would you want to go around flashing BIOS's if you don't have to? I HAD to flash my laptop bios today and I never like doing it.

For the SLI part I'm 95% sure the cards have to be the same clock speeds, so I don't think the normal 8800gt would cut the cake.

If you do want to flash away this should help you with that,

If you dont need to flash your BIOS (Wether it be motherboard or GPU) DONT,Seriously.

There is quite a large margin for error.

It will work fine, but your superclocked card will work at the normal 8800GT speeds.

BIOS flashing is perfectly safe IF you know how to do it. As long as you follow the instructions perfectly, everything will be fine. You're using NVflash, correct?
