Stay away from any brand but eVGA ... you can take the stock heatsink/fan off and put an aftermarket one on without voiding the warrenty, they have a step-up program which is excellent, they are usually cheaper, their support staff are great, they make quality boards, everything about eVGA is awesome.

So Im going to get better FPS with an BFG?

eVGA all the way. Excellent customer support, specially with the 7900GT Memory Problems, they were very helpful.

^thats one of the main reasons i back eVga so much is because when all that **** with the 7900's went down they didnt talk bs they went straight to the point and said they messed up and they did everything they could to help out their customers.

and they have the step up prgram which is very nice these days when new **** is constantly coming up every other month
