$227 + $7.56 Standard shipping charge. I wish I had the money now for it
Beat me to it.
lol open box you guys do know newegg does not test their returns right?? I one rma'd a gigabyte X38 board when the nb overheated and caught on fire newegg posted it up as open box and the dude that bought it posted a user review about how he got the board and there were burn marks on it and it wouldnt post. this is why I NEVER buy newegg "open box" but hey who knows might just be someone returning it because they needed the $$$
Or incampatabilty, as in lack of power supply, Processor bottleneck(rig not fast enough for the card and poor performance), Ati hater, or lack of cash and last minute budget droped causing the user to RMA to get cash to pay bills.
Or Overvolted the card, also doing a Bios mod, and it has artifacts at stock speeds, or wierd pixelation on monitors because the core is damaged.
*EDIT*User realized XFX HD 5850's came instock, and purchased another HD 5850, RMA'ing the Crap Warrenty MSI 5850, because they hate there support.
OR HE/SHE HATES TE DX11ZORZ!
or last but not least Bad overclocker, and a bencher couldnt get any good numbers out of it.
I have bought several open boxed motherboards, RAM, and 1 PSU. Everything worked great so far.
Yeah I think it prolly wasn't a good overclocker or maybe the guy upgraded to a 5970...
I've bought 2 open box motherboards and 2 gpu's. One board worked. The other board and the 2 cards were dead. I personally don't like those odds, so I don't order open box anymore.
"hmmm, it takes time to test these products"
"i know! lets just sell it at cost price, and let some poor sod test it for us!"
Then you should check the Re-certified section. Those items were returned to factory, tested, and send back to newegg.com. Mainly because the original maker was like, "No refunds on working products newegg.com".
what a story, really sucks that they dont test it at all
It is a toss up, but worst case, you are out the return shipping fee. It sucks, but you also may get a really nice product for really cheap because someone didn't know what they were doing.
