Depends on the website. Newegg is a very reliable source for open box items. My advice would be to read some reviews about the website, and if they have excellent customer service, go for it. If it comes and doesn't work, get an RMA.

Newegg has some of the best customer support out there, I'd say go for it, and you can always RMA it if it doesn't work.
