Ok so.. unless I'm missing something, this is a complete steal at $429. It is open box so it's possible one of you OCN'ers abused the hell out of it, ran Furmark 24 hours overclocked/overvolted, and got bored. Then again, it could be a return from a noob who tried to run this on a 600W PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127574R

I dare say I might have got the last (only?) one
SO you gonna sale me a GTS 450 on the cheap? GF rig could use one to replace her 8800gts.

\Edit: NM, looks to not be worth it.

Man, that's an amazing deal, grats! I would have bought it but my storm scout can't handle the super long GPUs.

Good Luck with it. I am 0 for 2 on New Egg open box video cards.

Probably was the latter of the two there. I know people like that. XD They buy a stock Dell with a 350w PSU and buy a GTX 295 thinking it'll run...

Only open box I've done in the past is my 800D and it wasn't to bad. Just missing the 8 pin cable extender. And a couple minor things with the hot swap bays. Luckily Corsair is pro though.

Oh yeah! Plenty folks have had success with open box items. Or I wouldnt have tried the 2 video cards I bought. And I got a print out shipping label both times and no restocking fee, so its worth the try.

Yyeah for sure. I can't imagine this being a real loss no matter the outcome. I'm sure on Monday or Tuesday OCN will either be hearing some QQ or excitement from me.

Lawl..I'm just on stock cooling bro. I've been staring at an RX360 kit all week, if I hadn't bought this I probably would be buying one soon.
