Bought refurbished GPU once, regret it, half the content was missing. (Accessories) back plate was missing, and the warranty was crap. If that's your budget, just wait for the Radeon Rx 300 Series if you don't care if it's AMD, or buy a 980. I'd say wait for 980Ti but its rumored that's been pushed back until 2016. Really does depend on what you're gaming on.
