    Seems a harsh article, they can't supply what they can't get. I'm sure they'd rather still be in business. :(

    That's how I took it also....can't get the supplies..it's like having the carpet pulled out from under you, what can they do? They used reference boards..made by an ODM like Sapphire which made much of the cards for ATI which other brands simply stuck a custom heat sink on and relabeled.

    While I agree that the article was a bit harsh, BFG would still be in business, and perhaps still accepting RMAs, if it hadn't been for Best Buy:
    That's one of the reasons why I posted the article, besides letting readers know that BFG RMAs were being returned.
