Ever wanted to get OCZ-quality gear without paying an OCZ price? The company posted an announcement earlier this week that may just make that possible, letting the world know they are launching an OCZ Gear site expressly to sell hardware they want to get rid of.

The OCZ Gear site will carry many of their products, but will specialize in items that are either discontinued, refurbished or are considered "clearance" items. The reasoning seems to be simple enough: Too much hardware, not enough buyers - or too much old hardware taking plenty of space. The gear will still carry a warranty, so there's a clear benefit to an enthusiast on a budget here.

"Recertified" sections on sites like Newegg are popular among those who aren't squeamish about buying used hardware.
