BFG or MSI?


I have a chance to pick up either a BFG or MSI 8800GT within in the next few weeks. The way it works out for me they will basically cost me the same price.

I figure the best way to go is evga for the step-up, but out of these two cards what would you think would be the better quality card?

The cards are exactly the same. There is no difference except for the box graphics and customer support.

I can't tell you which between the two, never bought one of their cards

Never had either, but BFG has a great reputation for customer service.
