I am already squeezing every last penny I can to afford 8800gtx SLIed. My choices are either 590$cad for each BFG 8800 GTX OC (not OC2), or 629-689$cad each eVGA 8800gtx. Is the eVGA step-up program worth it for a canadian resident this late in the game? Also is the BFG warranty adequate because I plan to overclock the already OCed BFG and eVGA cards myself even farther. Basically is eVGA's policy worth (80-200$ sli) more then BFG's policy. Should I be more afraid/cautious overclocking the BFG' with ATI tool then overclocking the eVGA's?

What resolution do you plan on gaming at?
Also could you please give us some info on the rest of your rig?

will overclocking the BFGs with ATI_tool type software be just as safe as overclocking the eVGAs? Can BFG know if the card was damaged as a result of overclocking/overheating and deny warranty?
