Default BFG make bad cards?

i am getting dual 7900gtx's for my birthday and right now i have an evga 7800gtx and i love it. but it just doesnt seem that i am going to be able to catch newegg when the evgas are in stock. but on the bfgs and gives a date and time. so i plan on getting them then. should i wait for the evgas to get in stock or should i go ahead with the bfgs? thanks.

MSI doesn't suck.

evga is a great company but it seems most people get an EVGA ***** and refuse to believe any other company is worth a ****

I have a BFG 6800GT and it has been great. Runs 430/1180 24/7 without a hitch.
