If it can handle the default clocks then OC it more or just keep it as a 6500. This will do two things, have windows pick it up as a geforce 6500 and enable SLI , though it might be useless if you dont bother to get another one of these, but at least its better than saying nothing can be done.

HOW DO I FLASH IT TO A 6500??

THNAK YOU!

if you are new in flashing bios i suggest you should read more of flashing stuff and have an extra pci card if you loose display it will help flashing stock bios.. if you dont have pci then disable i/o devices in the mb bios startup setup may help you out.. it needs built in vga, after disabling pput the the card back in it and have the further process
and nvflash let us flashing
but before you start flashing save the old bios and keep it in safe placce

nvflash --save (filename.rom) saves the stock bios to a file, this all procedure need msdos platform you must have a floppy or mass storage device.. and have the bios file and nvflash software on it and then boot into dos mode.. i use my ipod to flash my card.. but it is strongly recommended that you should read more and try to find the closest substitute of ur original bios...
happy flashing

you just need to get your hands on a 6500 bios. The main site i use, MVKtech had only 1 result but thats for a 128mb card. If you can find one(and I will keep looking) then you're set, only one tiny problem... Your card seems to be AGP (im judging because your processor is a socket 478, and i may be wrong altogether), and i know of no 6500 AGP being made... I have flashed an AGP bios to a PCI-E card and it still functioned but i never did it vice versa, though the HSI part that converts AGP to PCI-E seems to be a thing of its own and may not require enabling or disabling in the bios at all.


Basically, if you can find a 6500 bios you're set and if the flash doesnt work (which it still should) due to that problem I still believe there will be no issue flashing back. I just need to find a 6500 bios.

Flashing a card across types will kill it, unless your extremely lucky.

Dont do it. Just OC. That card isn't work going SLI, anyway, with DX10 coming around the corner.

i agree and disagree... like i said i have flashed a pci-e card with an AGP bios and it still functioned properly... HOWEVER i believe this to be because if the bios told the PCI-e card to activate HSI chip and there was no HSI chip then theres no problem in the first place... you're right though, there is considerable risk and actually i would like to take back the statement saying "it should work"... its a tossup, honestly... no one has bothered to find out if the HSI is controlled through the BIOS or not, which im working on because i own a 6600 AGP, and am willing to risk it. but ive flashed 40+ cards and never killed one due to a bad flash, there always seemed to be a way to recover. I'm a risk taker, and it probably wouldnt be my place to have people experiment with their hardware unless im 100% sure on something, SO ill flash a PCI-E bios onto my 6600 and get back to you on that...


Edit:

AGP Card with PCI-E Bios WORKS... just FYI, so apparently HSI isnt controlled by BIOS. There should be no problem flashing a 6500 PCI-E bios to a 6200 AGP card. They both use the same ram and have the nv44 core.
