The GTX770 is way overpriced right now. I can buy a GTX780 from retail stores for $450 or used for $400. The correct MSRP for a GTX770 should be at around $300 brand new (currently at $350). Just saying...

Comparing used/refurbished to new is silly.

As for this particular card, it's an overclocked, FTW Edition with 4GB (not 2GB, which is an option in the GTX 770 field) and a custom cooling solution. It doesn't sound like you factored any of that in, and I'm pretty sure you're comparing prices of 2GB cards to this 4GB model, the latter of which are generally around $50 more expensive.

BTW, the MSRP for a GTX 770 with 2GB is $330 following Nvidia's most recent price cut.

I disagree. Comparing brand new to used (never mentioned refurbs) is NOT silly. The plain fact of the matter is every single card I ever bought used vs. brand new worked perfectly. Granted that you only save about $40-50 on the average (and sometimes more), a brand new card is still overpriced for the performance class. You go ahead and waste your money on a brand new year-old tech card and I'll choose to buy mine used. That just leaves more money in my pocket to upgrade when the 800 series is released :P

If you're the bashing the price of a new product because used is cheaper, that's silly, regardless of your anecdotal experiences (I've also had good luck with used products, and horribly bad luck). Used/refurbished will almost always be cheaper than new, but that doesn't negate the deal price of a new product. 

For what this product is -- a factory overclocked EVGA GeForce GTX 770 4GB FTW w/ ACX Cooler -- the $380 deal price is a really good one and the cheapest you'll find this particular model (new) on the web, and that's before factoring in the $20 mail-in-rebate, which brings the price down to $360 if you want to mess with that stuff.

But to your point, yes, a slower clocked version with half as much memory, a different cooler, and that is used (and presumably non-warrantied) and/or refurbished can be found for less. Also, a new bag of apples doesn't cost the same as a half-eaten orange.
