Multi Video Card Setup proc/pci Question

Hello All,

I have the same 4 nvidia video cards and after installing the drivers and setting up my XF file I noticed that in the /proc/pci file 1 of the cards (the main console) has a different revision number. Like the one is rev 164 and the other 3 are rev 193. Does this mean that the firmware or any software contained on the board is a later revision? Or does it mean that the nvidia driver I loaded on the computer is doing something funky. I have another 3 headed computer with different cards than the ones I'm using above but again they are all the same, using the same driver I downloaded from the website and they have a different rev number than the ones above but they are all the same.

Oh yes and every loads up fine I was just wondering if it should be something I should worry about?
