Why Flash Video card BIOS?
So I OCed my card to the point where I wouldn't get artifact errors and could pass the ATI Tool test for at least an hour, now I heard that people flash the videocard/BIOS to keep these OCed settings.
My question is, why? ATI Tool provides the option to automatically set the OCed settings during windows startup, so isn't it just so much more convienant and less risky to use this method? Any disadvantages?
