I do like BFG, my last BFG 6800 died and they replaced it free and upgraded it 3 years later with a 7800 GS

I agree with your recommendation though.

OCZ is also good. My 700W GameXStream has been rock solid for around 2 years now. Runs very quiet and cool.

EDIT: This looks good for the price:

I am still not 100% sure which video card to go with, was hoping that nvidia will drop prices on GTX260 since ATI came out with their latest cards

ATI 4870 looks nice, but I still prefer Nvidia, only becuase I never had good luck with ATI in the past, and I heard these new ATI cards run real hot and like you said for that price they should have more memory.


Really touch choices right now

Ever hear of anyone bricking their drive by modding it?

That case looks pretty good for the money.

And the GTX260 is hard to beat at $300. I can't believe they dropped that low so fast.

The 4870 is a very good card, but I think the extra memory of the 260 will make a big difference in upcoming games.
