RMA A Refurb?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering, I'm going to be buying a refurbished x1900XT, and just in case it arrives DOA, or unuseable, can I RMA it to ATI?

Refurb'd cards undergo extensive testing, so the chances of it being DOA are actually less than a new card, IMO. With that said, if you bought it from Newegg, they'll just give you a refund. If you would rather RMA it to ATI instead of getting a refund, I don't see any reason why you couldn't. They still have the full manufacturers warranty.

Just a further post of support, the last 2 video cards I've purchased for myself were both refurbished cards. Both turned out to be excellent overclockers and I've had nothing but positive results. I plan on buying refurbished again if the card I want is available.
