    What prices are you guys getting for the open box 450s? They have the EVGA ones (3yr warranty) for $121 -$20 MIR + HAWX2 on Newegg. I want to replace my GTS 250 with one, but of course I want to spend as little as possible.

    How much was shipping? I can often find better deals, after MIR:ohwell:, on new than open box plus shipping. Newegg has 10% off on video cards through midnight PDT 11/12 or "while funds last"! :D

    $1.99 on each for ups 3 day shipping. It wasn't bad.
    EDIT, I hate to deal with MIR they take way to long and sometimes you don't even get the darn things.

    I also bought a 460, exclusively for folding.

    In addition I got a new case, (newegg specials FTW), an old AM2+ board with a 4200 (from a TPU member) a 650w PSU (from a TPU member).

    I am getting my new folding rig up soon. I expect it to be operational at the end of November / beginning of December. I am slowly grabbing up components. When I go home for thanksgiving I will be able to get the rest of the parts I need from my old desktop rig (ram, HD, cables, monitor).

    I plan to have this be my 24/7 folding rig. I have free electricity, so why not?
