need an opinon.
so basically i am checking out my local classifieds and there seems to be 2 gtx690's sealed for 650$ a pop can. I figured the poster was high and or there stolen. It seems way to good to be true as i have been on backorder since they came out. I was curious as to what i should look for when i go to take a peak at these cards. There both sealed in box. If for some reason there stolen or hot and swim was to buy them, would there still be a warranty available, also if swim bought them would the warranty be legit from the manufcaturer. Is there any telling tales these cards could be fake as shit visually i should be weary of? should i bring my workbench with me and hook the cards up myself to see if there valid. sorry for the long rant just trying to comprehend what i read on the classifieds today.

short answer, if you're buying online sight unseen, definately beware. If you're able to go and physically look at and touch the cards, then you should know what to look for. Look at pictures of the cards, watch all the youtube reviews, etc. I wouldn't buy them without actually being able to physically open the box and take the cards out, because yeah, that price is kind of too good to be true.

If it is, congratulations on your find.

Are you in Edmonton? I have seen this add a few times in the past week here. I wouldn't even consider it. I wouldn't trust having 650 cash on me to meet a stranger with this amazing deal.
