The Dangers of Refurb
This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 11179-09-CPO 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Video Card
Pros: -Great card, even for the money *now*
Cons: -"Refurbished" doesn't always mean the seller caught every problem with the card or tested it rigorously.
Other Thoughts: -I recommend buying this card for the home builder who has a backup GPU, and time to wait for the long process of RMA'ing in case it goes out. The HD6870 is still a decent enough GPU that if somebody sent it back, something was wrong with it.
