Default which video card is a better choice.

1.)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130234
2.)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143036

do not make decisions on price...please make decisions on which is safer and which is more reliable (they are almost the same). and please defend reasoning. (as far as computer specs they both fit fine with the mother board and RAM and HD space)

yes it has slightly higher clock speed, but you can easily do that with the eVGA one. the eVGA has s-video out as weel, the BFG one doesnt. other than that everything is EXACTLY the same. other than BFG's lifetime warrenty. but why do you need a lifetime warrenty on a card your only going to have for about 2 years?

BFG-lifetime warrenty
eVGA-also has s-video out
