BFG GeForce 8600GTS OC or XFX GeForce 8600GTS?
 
Hey, I'm deciding on buying one of these cards. They seem pretty similar, but the BFG outspecs the XFX by a wee bit. The BFG also with the rebate is cheaper by around 5 dollars.

Here are the two links.
Canada Computers - Video Cards > PCI-Express Cards > Powered By nVidia : BFG GeForce 8600GTS OC (ThermoIntelligence) nVidia GeForce 8600GTS Chipset (710Mhz) 256MB (2Ghz) GDDR3 Dual DVI PCI-Express Graphics Card.

Canada Computers - Video Cards > PCI-Express Cards > Powered By nVidia : XFX GeForce 8600GTS nVidia 8600GTS Chipset (675Mhz) 256MB (2.0Ghz) GDDR3 Dual DVI PCI Express Graphics Card .

What do you guys think? Which one would be better?

They are the same except for a slight OC on the XFX model.Go with the cheaper model and OC it your self.

I'd go for the BFG. It has a "custom" cooling design which hopefully is better and quieter as they claim.

from experience the xfx card is fantastic and has played everygame i can throw at it on ultra settings (PD 3.4ghz 1 gb of Ram Crappy asus mobo) these do run hot (57 idle, low 60s load)
