it's probably only me but I had 0/no support at all from PNY when I had a problem (didn't reply to any of my emails/support requests) - I had to send the card back to the retailer in the end - something worth considering if you have a problem with your BFG card.

What a shame, I've always liked BFG. Personally, after a few duds, I will never buy from PNY.

For now, I'll stick with eVGA.

I have been a BFG fan for years, mainly because of their availablilty in the channels I would use to buy hardware. Since their closing and a Microcenter opening near me, I have switched to EVGA for MB and GPU's.

Strangely enough, I have had a BFG GTX 260 die and another was DOA in the box, but was swapped by Microcenter and the card works well to this day.

I still have a working BFG 8800 GTX and GTX 285 in spare boxes. I wasn't too worried because they at least had an RMA program. I just hope they last for a while. They are both still great cards.
