Open Box Savings??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking at getting an MSI R5770 Hawk, $154.99 - $20 MIR + freeship.

Figuring in tax, shipping + rebate for both items, the Open Box only comes to $14 less. That's hardly worth it, right?

I personally would pay $14 more for brand new...

Depends on if you want to wait 6+ weeks for a MIR. I personally hate MIRs and refuse to buy anything with one attached. MIRs either take forever to get-or after buying the item and waiting 6+ weeks they don't give you your money.
