Re: Is XFX a good company?
Regardless of whether you choose BFG, XFX or EVGA for your 780i board, the only thing distinguishing them is the warranties and customer service support provided by the distributing company.
All 780i boards based on the reference design are manufactured by Foxconn.
MSI and Asus are exceptions, they make their own layouts and will vary in features. DFI has made Nvidia chipset boards in the past with their own layouts and whatnot, but I haven't heard much about a 780i or 790i board as of yet from them.
SO... if you're going with the reference design, then it wouldn't make much of a difference. I like XFX, good support. I've only had good experience with them.
