    Would you trust buying a refurbished mainboard?

    I wouldn't trust just any refurbished anything unless I knew it was from a respectable place

    The biggest problem with getting refurbished mobo's is that you rarely get any of the other components that were included with it origionally. At least that's what I've noticed with one retailer, whom we are all familiar with here in the states.
    :-(

    No! :hammer:
    All refurbished mobo's (or any other part for that matter) have had some part repaired on them but usually the part that causes the problem isn't the part that was repaired but the part that causes other parts to fail.

    Seriously, wouldn't it all depend on the price..:?:

    But I guess it must be one helluva discount if it'll be worth the risk of malfunction. :2cents:

    refurb means that it was previously used. but still carries warantee. w.o warantee its pointless.

    I was thinking about getting this board for $85 which ussually runs for around $200 (US). http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...type=Refurbish

    What is an AGP Pro port anyway? Will any 8X AGP video card work with it?


    Update:
    The refurbished ones are gone but I did place my order ontime. I hope mine comes without the lead pipe Fatguy3.:eek:

    Link to the new one here http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...=BROWSE&depa=1

    Update= I got it and didn't find any lead pipes. Works good so far:) .
