I guess BFG is on top because of such a competative price?

Im very happy with mine, overclocked 420/1100 out of the box, i havent tried more yet but i get the feeling its got room...

Best warrantee ever. In fact, I can't see them making money in the long run. The warrantee is that good.
Yeah that can definately be a problem. Lifetime warranty only means lifetime of the company. Anyone remember VisionTek? They were lifetime as well.

Which is where BFG came from, and if i remember correctly they honored Visiontek warrenties to really make a name for themselves off the bat.

im diggin my gigabyte 6600gt. its kinda nice w/ an all gigabyte setup. their tech guys may not always have the right answers, but they are patient, nice, and pretty laid back. dont feel like im talking to a headset jockey when i have to call that company, which is a bonus.

the joint ops/theif bundle was cool too.

I voted for BFG, since my BFG 6800Ultra OC was the first new card I bought and still make good use of it. Then I have 2 eVGAs running in SLI. I also use to have a Leadtek 6800GT that was given to me when my friend bought some SLI cards. I eventually sold it.

I've a Leadtek 6800GT. It's very nice, it does have a massive heatsink which isn't a problem for me. I got mine from newegg.com.

How has the original fan held up? I've heard BFG fans of a tendency to go out with time, well that is normal with many GPU fans, but BFG specfically goes out faster...only asking because I have recently aquired a BFG 6800U and am not sure how sure how much I should worry about the fan going out
