Thanks for the heads up, I will keep an eye on that, Didn't realize their open box deals could be so good. $320 is tempting but not as much as $280 considering the gas money and time to get over there (15mpg sucks when you have to drive 100 miles lol). So all said and done I am looking at closer to $340 to get the card assuming I don't have to drive back to exchange it.

I wounder if a open box reference 5700xt is worth it over a $300 AIB 5700. Once the 5700 is flashed it seems the XT only offers a few % improvement?

Considering ordering that and giving it a try during the 30 day return window. Then if it doesn't work out /is not worth the extra cost or a better deal pops up I have the option of returning it.

Read mixed reviews about that particular card though, personally XFX have been the best AMD cards I have owned.
