I'm reading lot of people in this forum are saying BIG GeForce cards are good. But I haven't seen any existance of this brand internationally. Not on newegg, Anandtech, THG....!! Also I have checked their website www.big-tek.com Is it a really good brand??? I know price factor is very attractive......but I'm bit confused about buying GeForce 6600GT (same brand)...!!

Its a indian brand started by Big Byte Corp so don't expect it to be on international sites. Many of the people who have purchased BIG 6600GTs are happy with it.

@harsh: Get a XFX 7800GT for 24k Or a BIG 7800gt for 23k. Incase you can spend upto 29k then go ahead with the BIG 7800gtx since the company has a 3 year warranty.

@harsh i think u betta go for LEADTEK 7800GT inspite of the fact that BIG's 7800GTX and leadtek 7800GT r almost of the same price.bcoz LEADTEK has been tried and tested through times and has kept its name intact in india as well as overseas.i m rather confused why people r suggesting BIG without having practical knowledge of it i m wondering if it is bcoz of its price tag.u cannot buy any electronic goods by using it for merely few months it has to b grinded through time to b known that it is good.people buy wrist watches on footpath which runs for atleast 6 months for no guarantee at all so running of any electronic good bought from a shop dat to of more then 20k is not surprising at all.

Seems to me they simply import the leadteck cards, & then rebrand it to BIG, maybe after removing a few software bundles to cut the cost

^ LOL! Where did you get that from ??

Check out:
- http://www.bfgtech.com/6600GT_PCIX.html
- http://www.big-tek.com/geforce6600PCIgt128.htm

Notice the similarity between the two cards? Apparently both BFG and BIG source their 6600GT cards from the same manufacturer. I believe that manufacturer is Galaxy Tech (not too sure) : http://www.galaxytech.com/news/36/20041013183225.htm.

As many know, BFG sells a line of factory-overclocked gfx cards. Hence the assumption that the BIG cards hold just as much potential as per overclocking and folks have had success overclocking the BIG 6600GT card a good amount as well.

However so far this holds true only for their 6600GT cards, not sure about the other cards in their line-up.

I fail to see the similarity between high-end gfx cards and footpath watches. The BIG cards are fairly decent, and they come with a 3 year warranty anyway, should anything go wrong.

lol wrist watches and graphics card :lol: ! I think you missed the part of 3 years warranty. In case anything goes wrong you can always rma. :)

@Gx: Zebronics brand uses leadtek oems. BIG gets it card from global connexions, the same OEM BFG gets its cards from. :D

I have to buy a 6600GT 128 MB for myself and today a friend of mine brought a BIG 6600GT to show me. Its price was 9200 (in Jodhpur) and i could find no reason as to why not buy it.... Though i will buy an XFX one...

I dont think BIG is a bad deal after all .. maybe they cut on software and games bundles and price their cards cheaper .. and when they are coming with a 3 years warranty , why to worry ???? .. Their 6600gt has been a huge success and i read its review in CHIP and they also gave it a good score .. so i dont see any reason to stay away from BIG.

you and me have very similar mentalities, i am am also one those who will go with the well reputed brands.

@blade runner
as far as warranty is concerned leadtek also provides 3yrs warranty. And BIG 7800GT is 23k +taxes(i.e ~25k)
and BIG 7800GTX is 29k+tax.
and where the hell did you get the price of XFX 7800GT as 24k ??? a friend got the rates of 6800GT as 24k about a month back; the XFX 7800GT must be at least 30k. it's price at ebay.in is 35k.

yes only big 6600gt looks same as the bfg counterpart...as they r frm same oem...........and since bfg is worlds best card.........so if u want a 6600gt than its suggested....but ppl dont prefer the higher card 7800 over it.....

Guys the brandname BIG is made locally in India by the former distributor of XFX ( big byte corporation)

THESE CARDS ARE NOT UPTO THE STANDARD OF THE ASUS , MSI, LEADTECH RANGE OF CARDS though i believe they are cheaper
