Its a bfg product so does that mean i can still use my lifetime warranty after all these years?

First it would lock up the whole computer on desktop with no artifacts

Then it would artifact on startup and freeze after the welcome screen(windows xp)

and finally it would post with a garbled BIOS menu.

Now there is a GT 120 in its place doing just fine!

So mainly my question is about warranty

BFG ceased to be several years ago, so no.

This. They went under during Fall of 2010 (3+ years ago).

Some of the employees/the BFG name where acquired by a company who owns the AMD card brand "Diamond"

PNY offered trade ins on BFG products (RMA) in exchange for discounted PNY cards but the deal only lasted a few months

Looks like you're in for a new build.

Just looking on wikipedia on the 9800gx2 technical specs.

It is a dual GPU based on the 8800 GTS 512 MB. The release date was way back in March 2008 at a cost of $667.

What kind of games do you play? Have you considered on upgrading your PC soon?
