I had noticed that only after the fact Do I want to wait four days only to find out it's going to sell for $5 less than its listed price? I've tried bidding on a few occasions only to end up with a price not worth it at all for me to continue bidding. Thanks for telling me BTW for if I had not noticed......

if your willing to pay for an r9 270x then by all means get one!!

yeah buying second hand is a risk, but ebay and paypal will cover you if its defective in the post. also manufacturer warranties will still apply, and considering they are less than a year old your still good.
if its really a 3rd of the price id call it a worth while risk! I always sell my cards so I guess some people take the risk! other wise id have piles of old cards dating back to the 1990s!!
Ebay mate you are staring trouble down the barrel as my brother over in the UK can testify to. Its ok covering it in the post but will the seller come to the party? Personally for the small extra go new as I find Ebay stuff really expensive even from the dealers and they have to because of the slice that Ebay and PayPal take. Plus I would be concerned the manufacturer wold not hold to that agreement

I went for the Radeaon stuff to NVidia and haven't looked back . Currently I am running GTX 650i's in my machines and really good value for money and believe m stuff out he is really expensive compared to what most of the others can get.
