I have the dreaded XFX brand 6800gs card and I just put AS5 on it and it's been running at 535/1280 core/mem reliably. Load temps never past 71C after hours of playing oblivion

BFG is alright. See if you can get a leadtek. Those are pretty good too.

i had a msi 6800 gs for a couple of months, served me just fine, never had a hitch, had this xfx for a about a month now, not a hitch here yet either.. i wouldnt say any of the companies suck.... they all just offer different things... but bfg seems to be overpriced and has low clock speeds... claiming "overclocked"

On the 6800GS agp model's they have the second highest clock's i think Most other card's that i've seen are clocked at 350/1000 where the BFG is at 370/1050,I'm pretty sure the only higher clocked card was the eVGA @ 400/1100,Here in canada atleast around where i live the BFG was about $20 cheaper than the other brand's at the time when i bought mine

BFG generally don't have their speeds much higher than stock though. it's probabbly just a selling point having it stock overclocked.
