I dont know whether it is available to UK BFG owners, I found the BFG AGP upgrade page here so no mention of terms and conditions but it worth a try login or register it to find out.

says "Offer good for U.S. customers only" on that page. I wonder why they're doing it though.

they ran out of AGP cards and are trying to get some good PR out of the fact that they are screwed if people ask for AGP?

Better than nothing I guess but this would force people to upgrade their CPU/MOBO.
