Flash EVGA 9800 GTX+ Bios to OC'ed BFG

Hello!

Y'all helped me out with some problems a bit ago and I thought I'd throw another atcha.

I have this EVGA video card:

It's freakin' great. I really love it, but a few days after I bought it BFG released this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143149

As far as I can tell it's the same card just overclocked. I assume that BFG did extensive testing to ensure the card wouldn't crash and would run stable at those higher clockspeeds.

What I want to do is overlock my EVGA to the BFG specs (they appear to even have the same damn fan). As far as I can tell there two ways of doing this:

1) Use Nibitor to increase the clock speeds, make a new BIOS, and flash using NVFlash.

2) Download the BFG Bios from: http://www.mvktech.net/component/opt...rent,category/

And again use NVFlash.

Which is the easier option? Which is the safer option?

I'm extremely new to this (I've only ever just OC'ed my e8500 from 3.16 ghz to 3.6 ghz using the mobo BIOS). I've never "flashed" anything.

A step by step walk through (or link to one) would be beautiful, but even just suggestions from people on what has worked in the past would be great. Thank you in advance!
