Red face So I'm looking at video cards at

I'm wondering which brand is better in terms of GeForce cards, XFX or BFG tech? Which is better overall? I'm comparing these two cards right now, I can't see why the XFX one is so much more expensive.

Go for the BFG. The XFX is a tab faster, but BFG gives a lifetime warranty on their cards.

Yes that's what my other friend said too, but I needed another opinion.
