I'm a bit lost. Yes, it's a BFG. I never registered it, and it is 2+ years old now. IIRC I missed the lifetime warranty thing anyway, and isn't BFG pretty much dead now?

I had a very interesting weekend. On saturday i went to the store and i bought a Powercolor HD5830.Going home i had problems with the card. Screen was turning black after sign in Windows , and the card was warm like hell.Went back and i exchanged the card for an Evga GTX465. Installed the card and suddenly my room got warmer. Disappointed again. Sunday went to the store and i returned the card , lost 5% restocking fee. Finally bought what i should buy from the beginning : Saphire HD5870. The card is just amazing.


Thank you all for your inputs.

The card is not a reference design. Stock clocks are : 850 for GPU clock and 1200 for Memory. CCC doesn't let me to overclock to much: 900 for GPU clock and 1300 for Memory.
