Default BFG Tech GeForce GTX 285 OCX graphics card

BFG Tech has ticked most of the boxes on our checklist with its GeForce GTX 285 OCX graphics card - its clock speed increases are impressive, there's still headroom for overclocking, performance is excellent, the after sales service has a proven track record and it's the fastest single GPU graphics card we've ever tested. But all of this comes at a price and sadly that cost is just too much when you look at the wider market in the UK.

There are still a bunch of bargain GeForce GTX 280s on the market and if I were you, I'd snap one of those up while I can. Following that, your next best bet is the Radeon HD 4850 X2, but be wary of its fan noise - it's not offensively loud with the latest BIOS, but it's not anywhere near as quiet as the Nvidia competition. Moreover, the Radeon HD 4850 X2 has potential limitations that stem from its dual-GPUness and many don't want to swallow that pill - it's also not going to set the world on fire in Folding@Home. Typically, Nvidia's cards can deliver more points per day and so they're better suited to that task.

The market has shifted and Nvidia needs to lower the prices of its GeForce GTX 285 GPUs so that partners can compete with the competition that's out there from AMD. At the moment, most of the GeForce GTX 285s are competing against the Radeon HD 4870 X2 and I think we all know who wins that battle.
