Position 1 gives you badgers.

Position 2 gives you mushrooms.

Yeah I have no idea... I'm thinkin a more indepth description is required for anyone to say one way or another.

It's BIOS switch. I think 1 is BIOS you can reflash, and 2 is original BIOS you can not change. A small help to people that like to overclock their cards.
