Are refurbished cards reliable or should I just wait for them to order me a new one?
Depends on how fast you want the card. Usually refurbished hardware is totally fine, usually whomever is fixing it will have to put it through a bunch of extra testing to verify it can be re-sold, so often refurbed units will go through more testing than batch sold units.

If you really like the idea of a brand new untouched one you can wait too
