eVGA. More reliable, great tech support, trust the company more in general.

For Nvidia cards, eVGA is simply the best.

the bfg comes OC'd, but i've read that its OC sucks

the eVGA doesn't come OC'd, but when OC'd, it's speeds will be much higher than the bfg's

True, the stock OC of the BFG doesn't mean a thing, but mine has OC'd very well, I can easily run it at 425 core, and has seemed to be on par with the other quality makers such as eVGA and Leadtek 6800GT's. BFG is still definately a top name for nVidia cards.

BFG makes too much of a big deal about their tiny OC.......you can take that eVGA toss it up the 20MHz extra BFG has it as soon as you get the card dude.

eVGA all the way although I see you've already said that
