Buying an open box 4870 x2 a good idea?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am thinking of getting an open box Sapphire 4870 x2 but I am not sure if Sapphire will accept it if ever I have to RMA it.

Do you guys think its possible?

I am not sure if the card will come with a warranty from Sapphire.

I was looking into the warranty info on Sapphire's site earlier. They carry a 2 year warranty (on new products anyway, doesn't specify anything additional), but only through the reseller. You'll have to find out what NewEgg's policy is.

It will. All open box products carry a manufactures warranty but no newegg warranty.
