Which is better evga or bfg

Post by sbjlsmtj » Wed Feb 15, 2006 9:46 pm

I am going to run 2 of the cards of course, but which is better? The evga has a faster core clock and memory clock and it's over 50 bucks cheaper (x2), but is the bfg better? I want to compare apples to apples, so lets say I have enough power and enough cpu to run them, is the bfg worth over a 100 bucks more? Thanks

Its sorta a wash. I think I'd go with eVGA if their products were identical and prices equivalent, however.

BFG for their lifetime warranty. But more so My fav is XFX for their double lifetime warranty.

eVGA has the lifetime warranty, as well as the most lienent warranty in terms of overclocking, changing the heatsink, etc. Basically, as long as you don't take a hammer to your cards, they will replace them. You also get the 90 day step-up, which is nice since a new release could be within that 90 day window at this point.

My friend swears by EVGA and I have to admit his cards usually OC well and stand up to some solid pushing. I am a fan after seeing his continued results.

EVGA seems to have become just as good if not better then BFG, but when I bought my nVidia card a while back BFG was still ahead.
