I love these little guys, RIP BFG.
Consider yourself lucky :) - Yes how can I forget them, however one thing, In my opinion their support was terrible. I have an 8800GT BFG that failed on me, mind you, this could be a 8800 issue, which was barely used (so much for the lifetime warranty !) but they will go on blaming NVIDIA of course. Last few GPUs I had were all BFGs, never had any problems before except with the 8800GT single slot, but apparently it was not uncommon. Even got some BFG T-shirts so can never forget them.
