So I work at Microcenter (I'm sure most people know that store) and I have a chance to get an open box Zotac 680 for around $340-350. It's tested and works fine and everything. I don't really know too much about the brand and from what I read around they're decent cards just at the bottom of the Nvidia card sellers.

So I'm just trying to hear if I should get this card or skip on it.

It's this card here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-500-...

yea man I would go for it....thats a pretty good deal...does the card appear to be used? (dust buildup or anything) I mean its based off of the reference 680 design so they cant really screw it up haha (zotac) and you said its been tested so I would def hop on that deal if you are in the market for a new card

Nope it's pretty clean. You have about 15-30 days to return your purchase depending on the item so the original owner didn't own it for too long.

If I had 700 dollars I'd probably get the other one (there was two of them) as well, but one should be plenty for maxing games out for a good while.

No, Colorado lol. Always check those clearance/openbox deals. Most are just people buying things to figure out if it will fix their computer to only find out it wasn't that and return it shortly after. As a cashier I hear all the time "Yeah I'm just trying to figure out what's causing my computer to not work its either ______ or _______. If they don't work I can return them right?"

If only my store manager didn't do so many markdowns for the month I could of probably gotten this card for less than 300 haha. No way its going to be there by next week though so I'm just saying f*** it and getting it.
