Well to be honest,the same card with RX tag(not lifetime warrantied) is 239$ in special on newegg.the AR version(lifetime warranty) is 249,99$.

See it like u want it,those cards have been tested and are 100% working.
I guess the worst case scenario would be one of the two coming DOA.

In this case,all you would have to do is run the card that work for the time they replace it.But this can happen with an brand new card also,and the RMA proceedure would still be the same.

But,between me and you,those gtx 560 ti wont die on you im pretty sure if you dont over-over-Oc'd them.

But its my call......by the 90 days warranty,u have plenty time to test them out and stuff....after that,just dont boost the voltage.

my oppinion.
Also,if youre aiming for 560 ti's
i suggest to put 20$ more per card to take the GTX 480 if your case can handle it.

My case would handle 480's but oi, I have a problem with always wanting the "newer" models of things. But ya the 560 TI's looks like a good deal.

Also i know its a 90 day warrenty, but the RMA is still the same, where if it breaks a year later I can RMA it?

No, if it breaks within 90 days they will RMA it. after that your all on your own.

I have purchased a few refurbished cards and all have worked flawlessly,

I need to order tonight,because im tired of waiting to play my steam games.

Final thoughts

?

I think i could manage the heat if its the only downside.

Yes,u can always RMA it,but sometimes at some fees.
Anywayz,in a year,if..and i say if they brake,the keplar version of new graphic cards will be out for a moment then...so i wouldnt even bother RMA them even for free.

But if like youre like me,doesnt use more then 1080p and no surround screens....your gtx 560 ti FPB would be good for a long time.

Its up to you....pay 2 x (249,99$)
or pay 179$ x 2

u decide....
if they were GTX 590 or GTX 580,i wouldnt recomend this option.
But this would be a beast for something like 350$ lol
think about it.
Have a great day choosing.
me im getting so freakin tired of looking everywhere for specs,benchmarks,power consumption,all that crapp....
lol
Im done....
Ill get the gtx 480 SLI refurbished.
keep them at stock clock,because well...they will be gtx 480 SLI lol,...
freakin power hungry card.
And i guess,...i guess they will hold on for a while.

-------------------------------------------------
But,here is my last thought,
on the market,the gtx 480 are out of date....barely buyable.
and they are still around 500$.
So for me its a good thing to try them at 200$

------------------------------------------
But yourself wanting the 560 ti,which are pretty good,are saving less $$$
in buying refurbished.

-----------------------------------------------
its yours!!!
sincerely,matt

90 day warranty means you don't have a warranty after 90 days, so you won't be RMAing them after 90 days. That's why they are cheaper than new, because of the very real increase in risk of failure with no solution.

Yeah i've heard case of friends buying refurbished for a second card in SLI,and the refurbished card was more stable and drained less heat in rare occasion.

Refurbished always work at least better then if you bought it with the code AR and was faulty,lol..
since they reproduced it.

im no too scared.


(sorry for bad english)
