Default BFG vs. eVGA

Ok, I have my new computer setup now I just need help on choosing what brand for my video card.

Should I go with the BFG 8800GTS or the eVGA 8800GTS.

They are both the exact same price...

Thanks in advance.

agreed... but I will say I have had cards from both companies, and I also used tech support for both... BFG to me was better in the support dept. Plus... just the name... B... F... G... what's not to love?

I'd go for BFG also, if I remember right, they have a life-time warranty or something.

BFG = eVGA in support. They are both great in that department.

My BFG 7800GT has been great going along for 13months and 4 days now. Go with the cheaper one.

So does BFG have a step-up program? Can you remove the stock fansink without voiding the warrently?

eVGA > BFG any day of the week.
