Is the tech guy indeed right in saying I should go with BFG > EVGA? If so, is the GTX 260 worth the $100 more over the 9800 GXT+ OC?
first ive heard of evga's burning up.
bfg does have better warranty, but both companies offer lifetime warranties and cover overclocking and such.
i like evga for the extras you get along with the purchase.
they seem to keep in close contact with their fan base @ their website.
bfg or evga, you cant go wrong, same with some other companies.
evga is allways a lil cheaper than bfg in most cases, but if your willing to pay the extra doe, its up to you.
btw, i love shopping at frys when they are having a sale. great big giant geeks store! lol.
also, that antec 1200 is a beast, i dont have one (i have the antec 300) but i saw it at frys, its very nice.
