Conclusions

Overall, BFG GeForce 7800GS OC has left a very good impression. It's a well crafted fast video card with a good cooling system. There is a good overclocking potential, and even ascetical retail bundle doesn't prevent from recommending this video card as an upgrade solution for AGP based computers. Finally, there is a lifetime manufacturer's warranty.
 
A few words about two other contestants. ASUS GeForce 6600GT Top isn't a bad card to have in means of performance, but there are some complaints about its cooling system — the fan is loud too much, and even considering that the fine copper radiator looks promising, the whole cooling system has been pushed to its limits, so don't expect good overclocking results. In fact, this video card has been overclocked already by the manufacturer. That's difficult to say anything really positive about Sapphire Radeon X1600 Pro. It is built of inexpensive parts including a thin aluminium radiator of some wicked shape. It accommodates a PCIe to AGP bridge chip (RIALTO) which gets hot very much under heavy load, and you may guess that there is no radiator installed.
