BFG calls it quits in graphics

Well, this came as a shock to us. BFG Tech has decided to ditch its graphics card operations. The company currently has a top to bottom lineup of graphics solutions based on NVIDIA GeForce architecture.

Although the company is leaving graphics behind, it says that it will still continue with its power supplies, notebooks, and desktop systems.

Here's the press release in full:

BFG Technologies today announced their exit from the graphics card category. The company will continue to sell their line of BFG Tech power supplies as well as their Deimos gaming notebooks and Phobos gaming systems.

"After eight years of providing innovative, high-quality graphics cards to the market, we regret to say that this category is no longer profitable for us, although we will continue to evaluate it going forward", said John Slevin, chairman of BFG Technologies. "We will continue to provide our award-winning power supplies and gaming systems, and are working on a few new products as well. I’d like to stress that we will continue to provide RMA support for our current graphics card warranty holders, as well as for all of our other products such as power supplies, PCs and notebooks."

BFG will continue to offer RMA, telephone and email support for qualified BFG Tech graphics card warranty holders, but will no longer be bringing new graphics card products to market.

It depends on what you are playing, actually. In the games that count--true competitive games like Team Fortress 2, Quake Live etc., (hardcore FPS games), you get more FOV. When you're playing at the pro level, this makes a huge difference.

Actually in Quake Live you control your FOV with a user setting, not your monitor type. You can set it anywhere from 70% to 130%. And some people prefer to play with lower FOV, because they say it increases their accuracy (it magnifies somewhat the entire view)
