Newegg Open box ok?

Hi

I was planning to go for a gpu upgrade and because the open box cards were so cheap i was wondering if they were good to go for. All i need is the card.

Here's the four I was looking at.

Msi Twin Frozer II 6950 2gb - $217

Msi Twin Frozer III 6950 2gb - $225
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127575R

Msi Twin Frozer II 560 ti oc - $184
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127565R

Msi Twin Frozer II 570 - $262
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127564R

For some reason, they're all by Msi. The rest of the open boxes I didn't like as much. Unfortunately not of these are in stock yet... will buy as soon as they're back on stock.
I has around $270 to spend and price-wise I was thinking of going for the 560 ti oc and save $80. But I might also go to my max budget and get the nice 570 deal.

Is openbox ok? and which card would you recommend?

  1. OMG! All but the 560 ti was deactivated O.o!
    Hopefully its not permanent and will be back in stock :/
    Wait... lol. The 560 ti is in stock now. I might just go for that.
    Do you guys think that it will be a good purchase? Could there be any problems with open box?

    Will spending an additional $21 for this card worth it?
  3. I think they are all gone, but open box items are good. They still have factory warranty, and most have the 30-day from newegg.
