Yes it is possibe to flash the card to higher level like a 5700ultra, and here is an explanition of how to do it:

WARNING many people do not want you to flash a cards BIOS do it at your own risk, says many sites for flashing a BIOS.
If you really want to flash the BIOS on the card go right ahead but if you do want to flash it here is a link to nvflash a program that allows you to change the BIOS on the vid card i.e. a 5700 to a 5700ultra in performance http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=972 and now that you have the program to do the flash you now need a BIOS file to flash with here is a link to a site with al kinds of BIOSes for cards and so on http://whitebunny.demon.nl/hardware/chipset_nvidia.html.The process of doing the flash is get a floppy disk and format it as a dos startup disk once it is formated put the files of nvflash and the new BIOS on the floppy and do a restart on the machine wtih the floppy in the maching and then the dos menu will come up and from there you will type in a series of code to do the flash i.e. a:\
vflash 5700ultra.rom, or such for the different programs out there the code is different. Once the flash is complete do CTRL ALT DEL for a restart and in the beging screen your machine will hopefully see the card with a new BIOS on it i.e. old 5700 new 5700ultra, now as long as there are no problems with the performance the flash is successful.

And remember to read my signature plz.
