It's AGP and OEM. That may count for part of it.

I'm not familiar with Sapphire's quality or reputation... that could count for the rest...

im fine with oem products ive ordered oem, but this still seems rather cheap for bing oem. it doesnt bother me if i dont have a disk and stuff

i just dont know about the company, thats whats so sketchy about it.

Try Googling the card, and add "review" to the query. See what it pulls up.

Call and make sure its not a refurb and check the warranty info and return costs likes restocking and such.
