Refurbished Newegg

I am considering buying a refurbished video card from newegg. I buy their new stuff all the time with great results. Does anybody have any good or bad experiences with their refurbished products?

I never buy refurbished. Though, if it doesn't work, newegg will send another one, so if you're using newegg and you're buying say a very expensive part, and you can get a refurbished for a huge difference, go for it.

what is the card?

In reply to: Refurbished Newegg

sometimes newegg has video cards for sale, especially Radeon 9500, 9700 and 9800 series, that have been returned since they didn't overclock high enough and the owner wanted a newer or different card...


but what is the card your considering?

Sapphire ATI 9800 PRO

So, ATI or Nvidia?

In reply to: Refurbished Newegg

The age old question. 9800PRO(New or Refurb) or X800 (if i can find one in AGP, and refurb), or the 6600GT(New or Refurb)?

well, comparing those three

In reply to: So, ATI or Nvidia?

the 9800 pro is knocked out by both, the x800 will out perform the 6600gt, in most/all games except doom 3. check out tomshardware, they have a lot of gpu comparisons, or google it.
but both the 6600gt and the x800 will do fine for bf2. i have heard about low fps for the 6600gt, but it is a demanding game.
