Thumbs up BFG GeForce 6800 OC 256 MB Video Card

I realize this card has been out for quite a while now. I bought mine early last year when they still cost about $400.00 (It was a little more because I bought it at Best Buy.). I have been using it with a 64 bit processor (AMD FX 64) and it has been a delight. I swear that some games I have loaded on the computer look almost lifelike. I had the card only about four months when spots started appearing on the screen so I updated the drivers and it didn't fix the problem. The videoo card was going bad. I ccalled tech support at about three in the morning on a Friday and the techie suggested my drivers weren't current. I explained that I had already updated so he told me to go ahead and package it and send it to their office and it would be repaired/replaced (they didn't even ask to see a receipt). Well, I sent that bad boy overnight on Friday and got its replacement on Mondy with no questions asked. BFG really does stand by their warranty/guarantee. I hope to never deal with anyone else.
Sorry I am pretty late reporting this to you all as the card has been out for quite a while, but I just could not help but brag about BFG's warranty for their equipment.

Another happy customer.

So you got a 6800 back? And is yours AGP or PCIe?

I have the AGP card. I wish my system utilized the pci-express, but it doesn't. This is a compaq machine made by HP. It started out as a great buy but I have of course upgraded just about everything. The biggest drawbacks are that I can only put up to 2 Gigs of memory on the board and that it is AGP rather than pci-express. But this baby has a 2.4 Gig 64 bit processor and with that BFG vid card it runs super (oh, and by the way I am running Win XP Pro 64 Bit).
When I get time and (lots) more money, I am going to get myself a hot motherboard and go pci-express.
Oh, yeah, BFG sent me a brand new 6800 video card back. Like I said, I sent it overnight to them on Friday from North Carolina and ithe new one came to me on the following Monday evening. It really made me feel like an idiot in a sense because I have more than one computer and rather than using the other one I purchased a Radeon 9550 256Mb AGP card from Wal-Mart expecting it to be weeks before I got my 6800 back. Oh well, a friend of mine had his video go down so I gave him the 9550.
