Recertified: XFX PVT98FYDF GeForce 9800 GTX 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
1 year manufacture warranty


It's recertified but I'm liking the one year warranty. Don't buy EVGA. EVGA only gives 90 day warranties on their "recertified" video cards. If they tested it and says it passed original specs, why only 90 days. I say this because, I bought an EVGA recertified card 8800 GTS 512 for $120 four months ago and last week it died. EVGA doesn't fo out of warranty repair and basically told me to go fly a kite. I replaced it with an XFX with a lifetime warranty.

Another thought about EVGA, even their new cards have only 2 year warranties while XFX has lifetime.

I used that same MX1333 motherboard last year. You can do a little, not much but some overclocking on it, just enough that your CPU isn't the bottleneck with this GPU.
