They took their name from Doom. IE the BFG (or big f***ing gun).



At the time they were about the best of the best. They did custom cards, factory overclocked cards etc and had the best warranty (10 years IIRC). They weren't cheap, but warranty wise you got what you paid for.

However, it was that warranty that bit them on the bum when Nvidia had a year off.

They were bought out by Galaxy, and became KFA2. If you didn't know what that means it's another very old term (or meme as they call them these days) which basically means "Kick f***ing ass" squared.

I've never heard of them before... Although makes sense regarding Galaxy and KFA2, which I have heard of though.

Not for me... Actually, it's nothing regarding gaming for me when I search that.
