I have no way to confirm if the gfx card works because I received a dead open box motherboard and I attempt to buy another open box motherboard. The problem is that I don't know when that will appear in stock and the RMA date for the gfx is on 8/25 I believe so I don't know if I should return it now, knowing I might RMA a perfectly good motherboard and end up waiting for who knows how long for a GTX 670 to appear back in stock. Should I? I used shoprunner to buy the gfx so shipping costs isn't a problem.
I think you mean you might RMA a perfectly good *video card
Either way.. I wouldn't keep a beat up 670 personally.
you could keep the card as long as you can and see if you can try it out on another mobo. You said the rma date is 8/25.. Keep it till then. If you don't have a mobo by then.. Return it.
