Re: Sli card vs single card: change my life
You can go BFG but I've used BFG cards also before. Now I use EVGA products and to be honest, I wouldn't go back to BFG speaking from my experience with them. My 1st BFG card was a 6800GT which went dead after a couple of months of use so they sent me a replacement. I had to use my s.h.i.t.ty old FX5200 for like 2 weeks while in transit. My 2nd BFG card was a 7600 GS and I took it out of my case for a holiday visit to my parent's house so I can play some games while over. After the return and plugging it back in, I started seeing artifacts on the screen when the computer goes idle for a certain period of time. It was annoying, I tell you. I don't know about others using BFG, but so far their cards seem quite troubling, hence cheaper.
Now I use EVGA and it's hassle-free w/ some of the best customer supports you will see in the market today and their products so far are no problemo. So if I were you, I'd go with EVGA even at the cost of extra 40 or 50 bucks: they're well worth the money since in the end it skips a lot of time and trouble you potentially might come across w/ other brands.
