BFG Going Down For Good

"Denial of service, liquidation, it's all bad news out of this former Nvidia card manufacturer."

Search News

Oh how the mighty have fallen.  A few months ago, we reported that BFG would be pulling out of the graphics card market in order to focus on some of their other ventures.  At the time, they promised they would still be able to provide warranty service to already purchased cards and up until now they have been able to follow through.  Unfortunately, this is no longer the case.

Customers seeking warranty service have recently begun to receive their broken cards and power supplies back along with a denial of service letter.  And that's not all.  These letters come bringing even more dire news.  The following is a letter received by a reader of the site HardwareCanucks when they attempted to RMA a power supply.

BFG Technologies, Inc. is winding down and liquidating its business. Unfortunately our major supplier would not support our business. As a result we are returning your graphics card without being able to repair it. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Times are tough and it's sad to see a well-regarded company go down because of it.  Certainly it is unfortunate that current users of their products are the ones that are really getting the shaft with the loss of warranty services.  One can only hope we won't be seeing similar issues arise out of other companies anytime soon.

Hi, another question for you all.

He is looking for a laptop for 1000 quid max (excuse the no pound sign, on Windows on Mac with random drivers).

He was looking at Alienware but I said I'd look into it a bit for him. What would you guys recommend?

He is looking for a laptop to play games on. He has no space for a desktop PC where he is now, so a laptop is a must.

He was also mentioning WAN or connect to the internet from anywhere (don't know what he was meaning, I guess similar to a dongle?), he said this would be a nice touch since apparently it comes free with Sony laptops.

So can anyone recommend a laptop which would play games (latest) with decent FPS.

1000 pound max!

Thanks a lot people!!!!

Ok had a little look around and for that money, I kept digging up the MSI GT740-021UK (£955 best price as it's 1 in stock clearance).

I found a review of it and it looked alright but it did get beaten by the Toshiba Qosmio X500-10T (£930 but not in stock) if you can find stock of it.

I did come accross this: Samsung R780-JS1BUK (Price £925 and in stock) though which I haven't seen a reveiw for. It has a slow CPU, but it does have superior graphics to both of the above. It has a slightly lower res than the Toshiba though.

There may be better out there, but that will give you a starting point at the price range. :)
