i have actually been looking at this model of 7970, its my second place. what exactly does open box mean tho? returned? damaged packaging? salesfloor display at one point? and the things im looking to play vary: Battlefield 3, MW3, StarCraft II, Resident Evil ORC (dont judge me :P), Blacklight Retribution, Warface (upon release), Crysis 1 and 2, etc. a few are nvidia optimized, and a few arent lol which performs better in this group overall?
