The only reason I'd get the BFG is to save a trip to the store, because you'll be buying COD2 anyway... But really, I see no reason to go for anything but the cheaper eVGA one. You can't argue with 20 bucks in the mail.

eVGA is the best when it comes to Nvidia IMO, but BFG is a solid contender too.

Link doesnt link to a 7800gt, links to some eVGA cards.

So I'm guessing you got a eVGA 7800gt, nice choice.
