eVGA "B-Stock" purchase question...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just bought a 980Ti and a 1200w PSU from their B-Stock inventory... anyone purchase from their b-stk before and get a quality part or am i chancing this?? I would think buying from evga they would make sure the GPU and PSU would be 100% functional but who knows redface.gif ... I can say EVERYTIME i bought open box from newegg, i got 100% defective crap and just hoping ill be ok here.... thanks for any input

I would generally trust EVGA. And I'm with you on Newegg. Every time I have purchased open box from Newegg, it has been defective, except my Logitech g100 mouse.

I was thinking of chancing their b stock as well. Also agree about newegg, their returned / refurb stuff is trashed.

You should be able to put some trust in EVGA. As far as Newegg goes, I got a refurb Crucial SSD about this time 2 years ago (Oct 11 2013), and it's still running strong. So maybe I got lucky there, not sure.

I'd buy it. Worst case would probably be cosmetic damage or coil whine.

My previous build had a mobo that was from evga bstock (750i) and it worked without issue. Additionally, my SSD was a refurb from newegg and has been fine for the past 2 years or so I've had it. I just ordered a gtx 670 from the evga bstock site and I'm not worried about it at all. My GPU history has gone: EVGA 8600GTS -> EVGA 8800GT -> EVGA GTX 260 c216 ->EVGA GTX 275 -> EVGA GTX 560Ti -> EVGA GTX 670. I have also had EVGA 650i mobo and EVGA 750i FTW mobo. The only part that ever malfunctioned was the 650i mobo after a few years of use and they replaced the board quickly. This was purchased new from newegg.

TL;DR Yes buy the bstock parts, they're fine.

B-Stock is generally really good quality items that just cannot be sold to consumer as new. I have worked with various companies that have had it for electronics and all the parts always checked out.
