    The 1.0.0.5 has the lowest power limit so naturally the 180w vbios is going to perform less than the 200w vbios.
    I would not call it crippling as you have a choice. The trade off is lower GPU temps.
    While yes it will lower the performance, its not a giant amount.
    If you are the type that likes to benchmark and get the highest number you are not going to want to go with this one.
    In terms of real world performance I would personally just test them. Again, wiith lower power limits comes lower temps.
    So for example if your testing shows a significant drop in temps but yields only a small drop in in GPU performance if tuned properly, you might want to stick with it.
    It depends on your needs, your paste, what you are doing with your CPU (shared heatsink) many factors I could go on and on about.

    can one mix and match the vbios with the system bios? for example using 190W vbios (the oldest vbios) paired with the latest 1.6.2 bios.
