Upgrading my video card from a 9800 GT 1GB BFG (ECO) to a GTX 560.

My maximum price range is up to $150.

I found this little gem on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130765
and I'm wondering if I should buy it or not.

It's refurbished, so there could possibly be a higher chance it could fail earlier.

What I really want to know is will I have time to return it/exchange it or get a refund for it if it does fail on me within a month since it's listed as refurbished, and should I buy the 1 year warranty and have it covered (I'm willing to go slightly over 150 in that case)?




One more side question, will it work fine on an Antec Earthwatts EA650 650 watt Eco power supply, that's running a 125W TDP AMD FX-6200 processor?

Alright, I ordered it.

Think it will run fine with my setup (if the card works flawlessly)?

I was actually eyeballing and searching EVERYWHERE on the internet for comparisons of a 650Ti and a 560, and I eventually landed on the 560 because people were boasting about higher frame rates and there was a thread full of people on here claiming the 560 was much better.

I can't really say for sure though, but the 560 did seem to perform better, but I really would have liked the lower watt usage on the 650...


I can still cancel this order, but I would have to wait for my money to be refunded for a few days.

I'd take the 560TI over the 650TI, but that's a 560(non TI). 650TI should be a bit faster while using less power.
