  1. If it ain't broke don't fix it. I never flash a BIOS if it already works.
  2. On the graphic card right? I think the card is not broken, so I dont need to flash it right?

    Because I searched some things on google and some persons told they bought an 2nd hand graphic card with the bios flashed, but they need to flash to they're bios.
  3. As Rastislav suggested, if you're not suffering any issues, it's safest to avoid BIOS updates. It's not something I recommend non-experts tinker aorund with unless it's absolutely needed - I won't even do it unless I have a UPS.
  4. I was worried cuz i saw this :

    The last post said something like flashing. How to see if the second GPU is running though?

    Thank you everyone =D

    Run some benchmarks with one or both. But otherwise, don't try to find a problem that isn't there! Problems pop up enough when you're not looking for them.
