How is BFG's warranty though? Anything close to EVGA or XFX? I'm thinking of picking one of these up, great price.

Newegg isn't always the cheapest but we recommend it becuase it is the best for builds. However buy.com and bestbuy usually have some good deals as does zipzoomfly, frys, and svc.

So for builds newegg is #1 no questions asked but yes you can a lot fot iems find cheaper parts elsewhere but remember that you get neweggs UNRIVALED customer service as well so if you pay 20 bucks more for something and it breaks 8 months later newegg will cover it even if its not under warranty...gotta love it.

Still I recommend other sites all the times for cheaper parts.

If you're in a state that Newegg doesn't charge taxes for, then it would be cheaper to buy from Newegg most likely. Newegg charges taxes for TN NJ and CA if I remember correctly.
