They are the official BFG reseller, I believe. You shouldn't have to worry about trustworthiness, though you may want to call to confirm your card is in stock.

Hey, yep, i preordered a bfg 6800 ultra with waterblock ocd to 470 mgz from them. Cant wait to get my hands on that sucker. Anyways, i've never ordered from them before, but they are the only ones that are selling this card. HOwever, I've heard only good feedback from them.

I ordered my water block equipped card on 27 June (a Saturday) and it shipped Friday, 9 July. FEDEX actually dropped it off here on Monday, the12th of July. I think that is excellent considering the backlog for high end 6800 cards......... and these cards are being built to order at BFG!

Nothing but a most positive experience so far! I paid the advertised price, got what I ordered, and it works! :clap: :clap:

I just placed a pre-order for the BFG Ultra and I talked to a rep beforehand. He said they have about 50 pre-orders for it right now and they've actually shipped a few but they're only receiving a few at a time right now. He said the best ETA he could give would be 1 to 2 weeks for mine to ship. I guess my BFG GT will hold me over until then. :thumbsup:
