BFG Tech; while always having been a brand that has pushed overclocked cards, the company never really pushes its cards to the limit. With the release of the new OC2 and OCX models we thought that this would change, and it's a bit disappointing to see that BFG hasn't gone for the 700MHz core and 2000MHz DDR memory clock configurations a lot of other companies have used who are pushing a bit of a serious overclock.
With that said though, BFG has done what they do best; create a midly overclocked card that gives us a nice little performance boost while offering a lifetime warranty and 24/7 tech support.
Since we pretty much felt that the card wasn't going to have any issues at 700MHz on the core and 2000MHz DDR on the memory clock, we thought we would just take the time to overclock it. As we expected, the card ran like a dream and continued to give us a few extra FPS here and there.
The good thing about the BFG Tech 9600GT OC2 is that we do get a nice little overclock while sticking with the single slot cooler. On a whole the cooler is pretty good and does a good job cooling our card. If you're tight for space as well, then it's an excellent option.
While we don't have any games and the cable department is pretty light, you do pay for the warranty and technical support. While some enthusiasts who might find this unnecessary due to performing regular upgrades and generally just knowing what they're doing, if you do keep your graphics card for a long time and want the peace of mind that you'll be covered if something nasty happens in 3 or 4 years, you can still get warranty on it.
