    I slightly prefer the look of that to the BFG version. It looks more slick and expensive. I bet this doesn't have a lifetime warranty like the BFG though, which is a shame.

    nothing like knowing that card has a warranty that will last longer than the time you'll actually use the product i.e 5 years-ish?

    Personally I'd take EVGA's step-up program over BFG's lifetime warranty.

    Doesnt look like its SLi compatible, which.. if your spending that kinda money on a card, you would hope was designed in..

    BFG is sli compatible :(

    yep, looks like the SLI bridge block is available separately, although my German isn't that sharp. :)

    Agreed, but the sexiness crown stays with the Asus N7800GT DUAL.

    Nice looking card, think i will go with the BFG though, it's £360 price tag from scan is reasonable enough to me.
