Got another DCII 670 today thanks to a friend of mine and spinejam
Quick comparison of the two open box cards:
a)Packaging: Came to my house in unmarked, small white box (small label on package saying something similar to refurbished). Video card was wrapped in foam and came with disk, manual, power adaptar.
b)Physical condition: minor scrath, VRM heatsinks missing, backplate distorted
c)Working condition: Display did not fill screen, reboot required. Failed MSI Kombuster in seconds, crashing drivers. Driver continued to crash for next 5 minutes, no display afterwards. Several resets later and still no display.
a)Packaging: Received merchandise in brown Newegg box, containing smaller ASUS retail box. Full accessories.
b)Physical condition: flawless. VRM heatsinks, no scratches, perfect backplate
c) Working condition. Proper screen size. Ran Kombuster a little bit without issue. No driver crashes so far.
Kind of in a rush to get going out today, sorry for sloppy format. Thought I would share my experience - both good and bad so far.Note
: Newegg did send me a prepaid label. So i'm at NO financial lost for the first card.
