    Worried about buying a refurb from newegg. They say they don't check the items itself but the company does. I'm buying from gigabyte so it is a really big company. Why repair mines when they can make another 30. They'd probably do a sloppy job on it. Can anyone help me? :)

    Newegg only gives 15 days warranty on a refurb purchase, most manufaturers don't warranty refurbs.

    I wouldn't do it but hey if you feel lucky.

    Well I found this website

    "Overstock Items - Most of the time, if a retailer has an overstock of a particular item they simply reduce the price and put the item on sale or clearance. However, sometimes, when a manufacturer introduces a new model, it will "collect" the remaining stock of the older models still on store shelves and redistribute them to specific retailers for quick sale. In this case, the item can be sold either as "a special purchase" or can be labeled as refurbished."

    Its funny how when I was after the card the first time I saw the non refurbished item. Now a few days later The non-refurbished dissappeared.
    And what took its place was the refurbished. It all kinda ties in. Still not sure... what are your opinions? :)
