This is a requirement in business to have a full featured system in order to go through the work process properly. Either conditions some high power graphics cards are not required but keeping then can so reduce the time to wait in high processes.

So much for BFG continuing to offer RMA's!  Here's the reply I got today:

BFG Technologies, Inc. is winding down and liquidating its business.

Unfortunately our major supplier would not support our business.  As a result we are unable to setup or process any new RMAs for BFG products.

I expected better, but then it's not like they care that I'll never buy another BFG product right?

ZOTAC also offers a lifetime warranty. See our warranty policy here:

This is just sad news to me, a long time BFG video card user, have a few here, including the pair in my main system. Great products, shame to see this happen.

 PNY also now offers a Lifetime Warranty with all the GT400-Series Nvidia cards.

"PNY Technologies, Inc. ("PNY") warrants the product, to be free from
defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the product as sold
to the original purchaser ("purchaser"), subject to all the terms and
conditions hereunder."

K0BALT, be sure to read all the fine print. PNY's so-called 'lifetime warranty' is only for the life of the product, not the buyer:

"Lifetime replacement warranty does not cover items out of production if the company no longer stocks them. (Lifetime is defined as the lifetime of the product on the market. Outdated technology is not covered by lifetime warranty if the item is no longer available on the common market as a new product.)"

Bolded for emphasis. EVGA, XFX, and BFG all over true lifetime guarantees (XFX even lets you transfer the warranty to a second buyer) so long as you register your card within 30 days of purchase. Unlike PNY, if your card dies a few years down the line, it's still covered, and you may even end up with an upgraded product.

Paul, Kobalt is correct! 

In 2009, PNY announced a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the high-end XLR8 GeForce GTX Series Graphics Cards.

PNY Technologies, Inc. ("PNY") expressly warrants this Graphics Card (product) to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of One year (*will be extended for the lifetime of the original purchaser upon completion of a registration form on PNY's website ) from the date of sales receipt as sold to the original purchaser ("purchaser"), subject to all the terms and conditions...” 

Better than EVGA, PNY gives the purchaser 3 months to register.  So even if your card dies, it’s still covered, and you may even end up with an upgraded product  :)

I have bought about a dozen BGG cards and I have really liked their service and in one case their RMA process. I am so sorry to see them go. I suspected it however when they were not making a big deal about Fermi.

Well this really sucks.  I have always loved BFG and have not had any problems with it.  I thought that something was up as there were less and less BFG available on the internet as well as at my local stores.  Evga has pissed me off too many times to want to buy their cards.  As they are the only one to offer the lifetime warranty, guess I am out of luck.

So long BFG video cards. I bought a BFG Geforce 6600GT (overclocked of course) back in the day and it served me well owning noobs in BF2 and America's Army. My fan died after a couple years and they sent me a replacement card no questions asked.

BFG cards have always been a little pricey due to the fact they are all O.C.'d I would guess but they were good cards.

This is indeed a bummer as it's always sad to see a video card pioneer like BFG call it quits (for video cards anyway). I'm not that suprised though as BFG has not been that visible for some time selling video cards. Newegg for example hasn't stocked many of them for quite awhile compared to other manufacturers. I think they were slowly not able to keep up and compete. I've had dealings with them concerning RMA replacements for video cards going bad and the experience was always pleasureable. Hopefully, maybe later they might get back into the video card market again.
