AMD is planning on making an official price drop in July, so that means that the prices for these very good retailers will drop even lower than this. Man I love price wars. I wonder what Nvidia's reply will be.


The 4830 and 4850 are open box. all that means is that the device comes with JUST the card and only the card, no driver disks or manuals or anything like that. they are brand new cards. Just without the extra goodies.
Open box means not only will they probably not have "extras", but also you're rolling the dice and could get a defective item.

In NewEggs own words about open box items "The entire risk as to the quality and performance of these items is with the buyer. These items have been tested for functionality, but may have superficial physical defects including, but not limited to, scratches, dings or dents. Should these items exhibit a functional defect following their purchase, the buyer (not the manufacturer, distributor, or Newegg) assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing or repairs, unless otherwise required by law. These items are not covered by any 30-day satisfaction guarantee."

And from personal experience and the experience of others close to me, it happens...

Newegg is liable for selling possibly faulty parts without putting them through stringent fault tests prior to reselling the item.

Newegg can try and use legal bull**** all they want but the people in the know can and will force newegg to replace any part which is faulty.
Usually there isn't much "forcing", I've had no problems returning anything open box or not. But that doesn't stop them from shipping you a defective item which you in turn have to ship back and wait for a replacement. The point is they know their is a good chance going get a defective item. Rather than just "throwing it away" they just put back up for sale at a discount and hope no one notices.:thumb:
