Just make sure that you pay with Paypal and spend the extra money to make sure that you get your money back no matter what. Because that site is kinda shady, and I have never heard of them.

You can buy from that site and expect what you want. I do not think that they will screw you over. They are VeriSigned, also you can use PayPal's money back guarentee feature to make sure you get your money back no matter what.

You know about how crummy XFX cards are?

I am aware there were a number of DOA cards shipped by XFX a few months ago, however I think that was just a bad batch since I haven't seen many problems with them as of late.

I wouldn't buy an XFX personally, but they are one of the better manufacturers when you compare them to some of the others out there.

Hmm I see the price as $268... maybe you counted a massive shipping too?

Well anyway, I've ordered from them before and got the product as promised. They had the best price on whatever it was, I can't remember.

As a matter of fact, this should clear up any questions:

4.38 out of 5 stars for 800 reviews, that's very good.
