About the layout of the board, can we still use that PCIe_x1 slot when using a dual slot graphics card in the first PCIe_x16 slot?
Thank you mates.
Don't worry about buying openbox...if its a dud newegg will take it back and AFAIK MSI can't know you bought it openbox at newegg so you still get a warranty based upon the date you enter at MSI's site as your "i bought this item on XX/XX/XXXX"
Thats a great price on the GD70 by the way....i actually purchased mine used from an OCN member around 3 or so months ago for 120$ shipped and unfortunately i either had a board failure or PSU problem that resulted in my board having to be RMA'd...i had not one problem threw the whole process nor did i have to get any kind of information from the guy i bought if from
Keep in mind though that there is a chance a few or all of the accessory's may be missing which IMO is still worth the price cut you are getting with that openbox deal...since you may only be missing that manual you can find online in a PDF or that crossfire bridge thats worth 5$ or less
Also don't be worried about missing accessory's keeping you from having the board sent in for RMA...when you RMA this board and i am guessing all MSI boards you don't even have to send it in it's retail box nor include anything such as cables/adapters/manuals etc
I'd definitely pick the board up at that price...honestly out of everything in my PC this is one item i have never looked at an been struck by "buyer's remorse"Edited by Rewindlabs - 11/23/09 at 7:48pm
