Final Thoughts


BFG as usual carries that premium price tag that we generally see on its products, while this may be out of reach for some people the features the brand offers really make it quite a good deal, with 24/7 tech support in the US, and a lifetime warranty offered not only in the US but most other countries including Australia, the card becomes great value for a lot of people. Not everyone upgrades their computer every 6 months and the chances are if you are buying a mid-range card you are not one of those people who feel it necessary to upgrade every generation - these users usually are addicted to top-end cards like the 8800s.


The overclock out of box is not too bad, while the core has got a bit of a bump it is disappointing to see that the memory runs at the standard 2000MHz DDR. When it came to overclocking though we found the card had no trouble achieving the same speeds that the XFX was capable off, it would seem that XFX have really overclocked the card to the max.


If you are looking for a card that is above average, no doubt the BFG Tech should be on your shortlist, the lifetime warranty and features like 24/7 tech support are a big plus. Yes, it does come with a price tag but it is nice to know that you are getting something for your money. As we said earlier sometimes it is little things like these that people prefer over a dated game that they are not going to play after a few weeks.
