Get A BFG Video Card When There's No Room For 2nd Best
BFG video cards really are a step ahead. Even though
benchmarking two of the same cards may yeald exactly the same number.
I have found this card to be the most stable and reliable
over continuous hours of use. They really are built to work
and therefore are my choice in any gaming build, or any build where you
are adding a video card.
When shopping for a video card, I use the same method as
described on the how

forget to clean out your video card when you clean out your computer
every 6 months. The video card in any computer is one of the
first spots dust likes to build up. This increases its
operating temperature and reduces system stability.

they tailor there video cards for the gaming enthusiast. As

Working With The Best
After I have done the initial install and have a system up and running
I always make sure I get the latest driver. Typically I look
for a new driver every month. If you have any kind of trouble
running a game, look to the manufacturer's website more often to find a
So what chipset do I like, ATI or Nvidia? This question is a
little loaded for me as I have had some bad experiences with ATI's
drivers. However, as it stands today I would be willing to
give them another try. Why? ATI's video cards
driver support has come a long way since the card I had in a build.
Both ATI and Nvidia have a clear difference. If you are after
image quality and nothing else, get ATI. Something about
their picture just looks better to me, it always has. If you
want the best support for anything you want to run, get a BFG video
card that has an Nvidia chipset. I have yet to find
and for that reason it's what I run.
More About Drivers
Any time you want to see the most performance with your BFG video card, make sure
you have the
latest drivers. You can usually get them from a
variety of different places on the internet, however, the manufacturer
of the chipset has always given me the best results.
I just read some sad news today, and have to pass it on the the readers
here. BFG is no longer providing graphic cards because the company says
it is not profitable for them. They will continue to provide
support and continue with their other PC hardware. I must say,
very sad for me to read, they were a great video card, I guess it's
back to Asus cards for me.
