    BFG Technologies, Inc., the leading North American and European-based NVIDIA supplier of advanced 3D graphics cards, motherboards, power supplies and other PC enthusiast products, announced today their new BFG GeForce 7300 GT OC 256MB PCIe graphics card.

    “BFG’s GeForce 7300 GT OC PCIe graphics card is for those consumers looking to upgrade their system’s graphics processing from the lackluster performance they are getting from integrated graphics solutions,” said Scott Herkelman, EVP of marketing for BFG Technologies. “This graphics card includes full support for Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0, true high dynamic-range lighting and for those consumers who are interested in doubling up, the BFG GeForce 7300 GT OC comes NVIDIA SLI-ready for combining two cards to get scaled performance at mainstream accessible prices.”

    I wonder how much it would cost. For a low end solution, its pretty well built and clocked. Could be a nice cheap alternative to a single 7900 GTX 512mb if its not throttled down by a 128 bit bus and an exhorbant price hog :p

    The one's with GDDR3 are good, but these with DDR2 suck ass.

    Galaxy makes one with GDDR3 and can't be found in the U.S. but it rocks!

    I'd opt for a 7600GS instead of one of these, or 7600GT if you can spend a little more.

    SLI 7300GT are roughly the same or slightly better than a single 7600GT, but costs more overall for a SLI setup.

    Actually I seen two of the 7300GT beat a single 7900 :p but it was the GDDR3 version which is pretty much super rare.

    my friend just got an XFX 7300gt. its a pretty good card for the price. he probably shouldve gotten a 7600gs and vmodded it :x

    he has an a64 3200+@2.5 GHz, 512mb ram haha.

    they're definitely good cards. his overclocked from 350 MHz core to over 500 MHz. not bad at all.

    I have two 7300GT DDR3 cards here, in SLi. I'm gonna do soem benches soon, but preliminary tests show them beating out my 7900gt (7900gt clocked at 600/1600) by a little in FEAR and 3DMark... I have them clocked to 600 core and 1600 memory also. I'm not sure how 16 pipes can beat 24, but they're doing it... Perhaps the 7300gt is more efficient because it's busses are heavily saturated, whereas the 7900gt wastes cycles because not all 24 pipes can be saturated... Maybe.
