Default 7900GT (bfg vs evga)

Sooo i am going to purchase a 7900 gt but i cant decide between bfg and evga... it is between 3 card, 1 which is bfg and 2 which are evga. the cards are as follows :
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...20Technologies
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=eVGA
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=eVGA

So which would you go with? And could someone tell me the exact difference between a 7800gt and a 7900gt? arent they kinda similar?

All video cards are simlar: They display video.

The difference really is the speed at which they run.

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=eVGA

Because it has the highest clock speeds out of all of them. Normally you wouldnt judge them by clockspeeds, because all cards are different. But as these are the same chipset, I would say go with the one with the highest clock speeds.

I've heard BFG has a good reputation, but bad tech support. They all pretty much look the same, except the last one is "super overclocked". Go with the eVGA since more people seem to say they make more reliable products.

I've used BFG and I've had nothing but good experiences with the technical support, myself.

I've never used eVGA myself, so I can't comment on them, sorry.

As far as BFG, if you chose them I think you'd be satisfied.

As far as I know BFG is pretty crappy low quality cards. I know future shops sells them and a guy I know who works there said that of the 100 or so BFG 7800GT's they sold before christmas probably half came back reported as being dead. Also I know BFG used to be a company called Pine and they had a horrible reputation for manufacturing bad quality cards. The possibility is there that they have revamped their system of manufacturing but judging by the reports of my friend it doesn't sound like they are doing so well. I guess for those that have had good luck with BFG cards just are in fact...lucky.

I say go with eVGA, they make great quality cards and have a great reputation all around. I haven't heard anything bad about any of their products.

It would be my favourite site if it did... way more selection. but i think i am going with the evga superclocked 7900gt.. its only 20 dollars more than the normal one and since i dont really know how to overclock videocards or even cpus yet ill go with that one.

Well, I definitally must've lucked out with BFG.. I suppose I'll get an eVGA card next time, and I suggest you to do the same as most of the people here have seen problems against BFG.

Basically BFG overcharges for slight overclocks, EVGA is way better in everything else
