I don't see a problem with it.Sometimes they are just returns that work fine.Buying a refurbished card can be a gamble but there is a good chance the card will be as good as any other like it.I bought a Biostar refurb mobo from them and it worked perfect.

I actually bought my Essence STX sound card from Geeks.com. Shipping took almost an entire week and it cost me $10 but I did save a ton compared to buying the card new. The card was pretty barebones but it works.

Bought multiple motherboards from geeks, even bought the cheapest TIM they had and it performed 2*c worse than AS5, well worth the money. Awesome company.

It's really up to you, take the chance or don't.

I never buy used video cards or things of that nature, I also don't upgrade that often so I want my hardware to last and have warranty's.
