It is new and not refurbish but come in OEM packaging(plastic Bag).

    You mean this one - LINKIE - your link is not working but found this $269 5850 -- It seems Tigerdirect (who now owns COMPUSA as well) has bought some reference OEM cards directly from ATI and is passing along the lower price since they do not have to pay a 3rd party to put their brand name on the card !! ---- It's a pretty good deal as long as you keep in mind the short warranty period (figure if it works for the 3 months chances are it will continue to but having a longer warranty is nice ( they sell extended coverage for $49.99 for 1 year or $89.98 for 2 years -- but that kind of wipes out the savings and defeats the reason for buying this one !!) - If you don't mind the lack of warranty then it is a good buy.
