Default BFG are fantastic...

A while a go i posted about my 8800GTS from BFG been just a tad hot, BFG replied it is in the normal range, but today i got another email from them today saying it is infact hotter than they would like [They wern't happy, they cared !] so asked for a screenshot on everest or something like that, and now they are sending me a new one all i gota do is send back my old one. but it gets better. I get to keep this one until i get the new one from them, so i don't have to go without a PC.

Pretty good don't you think, consider it would be very easy to lie about.

well not only that, but you could just not send back yours and SLI them, devious and evil, but it'll definitley work, they'll probably not support you for that address though anymore, lol

or just say it got lost in the mail

Don't expect them to send you an 8800GT, you'll get a 640mb version of the card at best.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

My thinkin is. . . they did you right, do them right. Maybe I'm just a fuddy duddy.
I have two bfg cards myself (7800GTX) and I love them. When I get ready to buy my 2 8800GT cards I'm going with BFG.
