Question Packing GPU for RMA

Quick question.

I have an original retail box (with antistatic bag) from the store. I need to ship GPU in it.
Do I better put this retail box with GPU into larger box with fillers for protection, or just tape retail box and ship as is?

Appreciate any suggestions, first RMA for me (NVIDIA GTX 1080).

Dpeneds on how did it arrive to you and/or are you willing to pay for little xtra safety by increasing the package dimensions. alternatively you can just wrap it up by few layers of stretch/bouble foil, maybe print and tape sign like "fragile electronics"/"handle with care".

I did not received this GPU by mail, purchased in store, so it is store retail box.
And I have return prepaid, I guess, shipping label for FedEx Ground.
I found a box a bit larger than original, and very light weight fillers, would it be enough?

It's always BEST to put the product box into another box, some small fillers are recommended. Don't go too crazy. All you want is for the product to arrive to the facility with "added" protection, so that they do not nit pick and complain about it possibly being damaged in transport. You can also tape your RMA number and any other bar code (sometimes given) to the product box as you pack it, to make it easier for the RMA team to process your item.
