Don't forget about XFX as well. XFX has very similar prices and a very valuable warranty with them. The only thing about BFG is that they don't support modding I believe. Only XFX and EVGA support it.

i was going to go with XFX, but at the time i couldn't find ANYWHERE that had any 260's or 280's in stock.. so i went with eVGA, i'm pleased with it so far.

I'll chime in with a recommendation for XFX.

I had a 8800GTX replaced, and their service was excellent, from answering my emails quickly, to getting the new card shipped out to me.

Plus their double lifetime warranty (warranty can be transferred to the second owner) is a big plus when selling the card later. They also are mod-friendly - so you can replace the stock cooler with something else and not void your warranty.

My EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked is a great beast of a card, and all of my dealings with their service have been superb.
