This is very very sad news. Most the cards I've purchased for clients happen to be BFG.

Bonus: Aftermarket cooling isn't an issue anymore since the warranty is gone already

As you can see in the article: the warranty denial came in the return box of a PSU.

The PSU is also being affected. BFG no longer has warranty for there PSU. NCIX sells there BFG GS-550 550W, but now comes with a 1 year warranty from NCIX, instead of there 5 years.

This is rather sad news, I quite liked BFG. Best of luck to their employees in the future.

I really liked BFG. They were really great about my RMA'd 9800 GTX, and they sent me a 9800 GTX+ in return.

I hope the GS-550 I put in my brother's computer doesn't die.

Goodbye, BFG Technologies. D:

Their PSU business has been dead for a while since they fired Jon Gerow.

The one year warranty is useless as well unless NCIX is going to cover it.
