BFG Tech GeForce GTX 280 DirectX 10 BFGEGTX2801024OC2E 1GB 512-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: High quality cards, very fast and loaded with superior performance.

Cons: Dont believe their lifetime warranty scam. Apparently they mean you will get lifetime warranty if your card is in perfect mint condition. I dont even want to begin to list how many cards I baught from BFG. Been a loyal customer for years and never RMA'ed anything. First time I had too, I get an email saying they just returned it because of tampering. They call placing a strip of dynamat on the card to absorb noise tampering. Besides that they werent suppose to send me a BRAND NEW card. They were just suppose to update the bios. So they didnt even do that. They just looked at it said its not in mint condition, tampering, no need to even fix it. I will never buy another BFG tech card again.

Other Thoughts: Im really sad at this turn of events. I used to love BFG and always paid a little extra to buy a video card from them. I guess its better to save money. Paying a little more doesnt mean anything these days.

3 out of 5 eggs Amazing Memory if you can get it to work 05/22/2009

This review is from: OCZ Blade Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3B2000LV6GK

Pros: What a bargain. Speed, Performance, Price can't be beat.

Cons: Can't ever get the memory to work out of the box. I had 2 striker extreme boards both with reaper memory from OCZ. After months of fiddling with every timing and rebooting literally thousands of times it finally worked. Now I have punished my self again only this time with a Rampage II Eztreme and blades. It looks like I will be fiddling with every timing again for months before I can get it to work.

Other Thoughts: Why doesn't OCZ sticky KNOWN stable bios settings with their respective boards is beyond me. I have to post on their forums. Then after a few hours I get a response to adjust a timing. Usually something I have already tried. Then I post again and have to wait another few hours to be given another timing to adjust. Please OCZ just sticky the bios settings under their respective forums. Also include the OC bios too. You know the OC levels people who buy this stuff like to get their air and watercooled comps too. Guess that won't happen.
