Hi,need help telling me which version do i update my card with,there's 3 BIOS versions...can't figure out which one,the card is GIgabyte G1 970

BIOS link:
GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 900 Series - GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD (rev. 1.0/1.1)

And i have it connected with a HDMI cable,this is the installation instructions,but it has no mention how to do it with a HDMI cable ?

EDIT: Gigabyte VGA BIOS tool

and when i first ran this tool it said " should not have any drivers installed "?

It looks like your BIOS update would only let you get better compatibility with some monitors. If you don't need that I would not even do it. What is the reason for wanting to update your current BIOS?

1. Install OC Guru II from Gigabyte

3. In the top left it will tell you which bios version you are currently on. (F51 for me).

4. Using the previous result get the right bios from the website. (Have F1/F2 => Get F3, Have F50 => get F51) There appear to be some versions for which there is no update (F10).

5. Install @Bios from Gigabyte.
6. Go to "Device Manager -> Display adapters"
7. Right click your GTX 970 and disable it.

8. Run @Bios and backup the vgas current bios.
9. Check the backups name (e.g. GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD_D.F51) to double check you're updating the correct version.
10. Add the extension ".rom" to the downloaded bios.
11. In @Bios click "Flash", choosing the downloaded bios.
12. Reboot.

13. Confirm the updated by either backing up the bios again or by looking in OC Guru.
