    Refurbished Graphics Card worth it?

    Powercolor Radeon R9 290X OC 1030MHZ 4GB 5.0GHZ
    New: $649.99 CAD
    Refurbished : $310 CAD

    https://secure1.ncix.com/products/?sku=91537

    They also offer MSI, ASUS, other refurbished gaming laptops for half the price(60 % to 20% off). Are they worth it?


    I feel like buying one . Budget = $750

    According to your budget, I guess it is worth it.

    Normally I wouldn't though because it's refurbished. Who knows what has happened.

    If you trust the site, then go ahead, if not then I wouldn't.

    I would just use the money to custom make a new computer. Would most likely go above your budget however

    Maybe post the site you're buying from, so we can determine if it's safe or not?

    I never buy refurbished items, I only might buy it if it comes directly through manufacturer, and inspected and make sure everything is in working condition. Many resellers usually just make sure it runs and it's in good looking condition and sell it.

    Go for it if you're willing to risk the chance of the card going bad.

    The rule of thumb is generally not to buy refurbished parts unless it comes with some sort of warranty service so if I was you I wouldn't touch this.

    The word "YOLO" is only used by degenerate 14 year olds. If you're making an investment and you arent currently sitting on a pile of cash, a refurbished card could be a great option, IF you find it for the right price and completely know how it was treated. If you go ahead and order the card, I would clean it thoroughly when it arrives.

    You seem like a degenerate 14 year old.

    I think you're better off letting someone SE that stuff for you instead of spending that much on a refurbished item. Might be cheaper aswell, idk.
