BFG GeForce GTX 275 OC Summary

This product is based on the reference PCB design and cooler but does not have an analog video output which is not a demanded feature today. As we have found out, the factory overclocking improves the performance of the BFG GeForce GTX 275 OC by no more than 1.5% and can hardly be noticed with a naked eye. Thus, the BFG card is a typical G200b-based solution with a minimum of accessories (even without a DVI-I → HDMI adapter). The product comes with a lifetime warranty, but a gaming card’s term of service is usually short anyway.

Summing it up, the BFG GeForce GTX 275 OC is quite worth your interest. It is not specifically better or worse than any other version of GeForce GTX 275. If you are looking for this Nvidia graphics card model, the BFG solution will be a good buy.
