Default HD 4870 X2: Check this out!

I was surfing ebay, and came across this:

Asus ATI 4870X2 HD4870X2 4870 X2 2GB Video EAH4870X2 - eBay (item 230309412723 end time Nov-25-08 04:24:30 PST)

A 4870 X2 that could only cost you $377!

Is this a reliable deal? Because I'm seriously considering getting this right now. I planned on ordering the parts for my new build (definitely didn't include a 4870 X2) as late as I could before Christmas , but I'd deem this a special circumstance.

Thoughts?

seems like a good deal but why so low on price? there might be something wrong with it, so beware.

Yes the live cashback works. Its how i plan on getting my x58 setup for under 1000 bucks. If you are interested in learning how it works, check out [H]ard|Forum - Powered by vBulletin and read up in the hotdeals section.

seems a bit dodgy to me, 377 is very cheap. even with the cash back. but then again i guess if its preowned, prices can vary alot by whos selling it.
