Thats a good price for them plus if you have issues xfx has a pretty good rma system.

I would say take them for that much :)

Seems like a good price to me as well. If he still has them installed you could see what the temps are like while mining. My concern would only be if the temps were very high for those 4 months. I will let others comment on RMA with XFX though...if XFX doesn't care about receipts and approves RMA based on card age only, then it wouldn't be a big deal at all if they were mining.
