    I don't recommend buying refurbished PC parts unless you get a decent X year warranty, which is pretty rare. If you have the cash to go new then by all means do it. If you are on a budget and get a refurbed product and after 3 months and one day when the warranty is void your product craps out you'll kick yourself. Its a toss up, i don't recommend it.

    well i was thinking of buying a refubished Radeon 9600. it's not about having the cash, it's just that it's $20 cheaper than the already-cheap new model and figured if it didnt make a difference i should just get a refurb.

    i think i might just go for it and try my luck :o

    Stay away from refurb... It's not neweggs fault, but usually the manufacturers miss something in testing... Refurb parts are almost never 100% working.

    I never would have gone refurb for only a $20 difference.
