About to Buy 8800gtx SLI Dilema

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?

  3. bump,

    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?
