    Didn't look that way to me...

    Good. I'm glad I've made my point clear and you now understand it so I don't have to say anything further. Arrivederci in Bucciarati's Voice

    Feel free to repeat whatever you're saying because you're out of things to say. Feel free to make speculations based on your personal opinion and nothing else and applying it for all cases because you apparently don't understand the concept of different viewpoints. Feel free to ask me about anything in general. I'd be more than glad to educate you on what you don't know or inform you on what you're wrong informed on based on my relatively average knowledge. No matter how much you insist, I'll make sure to make you know that you're wrong. You're welcome.

    EXACTLY. That's my point. You never know if it's going to work as new or die before you realize it. That's literally my whole point. YOU CAN'T guarantee it's going to work. Likewise, YOU CAN'T guarantee it'll die on you after a few minutes of usage. There is a chance it'll work fine and a chance it won't. Are you mentally able to comprehend what I'm saying or should I repeat it a dozen more times or so? Yeah, not at all. Except for the fact that your GPU will literally be roasted because it's literally functioning without being cooled (Unless you're talking about Q mode limits) That's not a concern, though. Getting a used GPU that has non-spinning fans is not a concern at all. I know, right? It's the last thing you want to worry about. I mean, who even cares if the card is well-functioning? It's a simple matter, you see a used GPU that "looks" good and doesn't have burn marks, you immediately buy it. Pfft, who even cares about the card's health? Who cares if the fans are spinning? You just need to get one that looks good. It's that easy. Honestly, people who buy so-called "New" GPUs are missing on a lot for not buying used ones instead, right? Definitely. Except for the fact that you don't know for how much I want to keep the card. Except for the fact that something as simple as overclocking (which is, by the way, something you wouldn't know has been done, if it indeed has) significantly decreases the GPU's lifespan. Except for the fact that you wouldn't know for sure how much time it's been used for unless the seller provides proof for it (which would logically be really rare) or by roughly estimating it through various aspects (like the model's release date or serial number tracking, if possible.) Not gonna lie, that's some top-tier speculation you got there. You're being way too salty and serious about this simple matter that you're smashing your keys without knowing what you're typing, I get it. Honestly, you need to calm down, buddy. Based on what you're saying and how you strictly you disagree with me, you're forcefully trying to claim and prove that buying a used GPU is a suitable decision for everyone and in every case. Re-consider what you're saying and you'll understand me. Ah, so you've finally realized what I've been trying to tell you this whole time. But wait a minute, doesn't that mean you're contradicting yourself? Based on what you yourself are saying, you are. By saying that, you're contradicting yourself so hard that you don't even realize it. Did you forget which side you're on or what smh

    Just so we can finish this off, here's the bottom line: If the seller gives you the privilege of testing the GPU, a consumer with basic knowledge would be able to know the GPU's condition by testing it and would therefore be able to guarantee that he gets what he should. If the seller isn't comfortable with you taking it, plugging it, and testing it while not having received his money (which is obviously understandable. It's a rather concerning matter because the seller should suspect the buyer's indecency just as much as the buyer would suspect the seller's) then this is the gray area. Some consumers- and I suppose most -,like myself, would see that as a risk since no matter how well-informed you are, you'd never be able to know if a card is in good condition by just looking at it. Other consumers, (like yourself, apparently) see it as an opportunity as most people regard used GPUs as half-dead, which is not necessarily the case, and you see that as something worth taking advantage of since the prices are significantly lowered in most cases. It's objective. Full stop.

    Given that you can test it, that is, which is as I mentioned, the only (rare) case at which you could be comfortable with the purchase of a used GPU. In addition, the fact that it's simply 'spinning' doesn't mean its life expectancy is as new. You point to a component on a GPU that is guaranteed to work forever. Yet again, there's also no way to guarantee it's in a good condition just by looking at it and seeing no wearing or marks.

    And how exactly is it 'obivious'? ..??! Definitely better than clear presence of wear, but more definitely not enough to deduce that the card is in good condition. Even though that's nowhere near being existent in all cases or even most of them, that's the only case in which I (or any consumer with my mindset) might re-consider going for a used GPU.

    Update B450 ROG Asus board with no cpu?

    Did you check if the RAM sticks you bought are compatible with the board?

    IF. IF. I don't have much experience with buying used cards but as far as I know, a normal, discreet person wouldn't let you take the card, plug it, and test it all while still not having taken their money. Does that make much sense to you? Excessive usage might not necessarily kill electronics, but it definitely wears out the fans. Having burn marks or signs of poor care is a definitive sign of misuse / overuse / or, well, poor care. (duh.) But that does NOT mean not having these signs is a definitive sign of the card's well-being, does it? That's my point. The fact that it 'looks' like a new card and doesn't have scratches / marks is never enough to deduce that the card is in good condition.

    except that you would never know by looking at it. except that having little dust doesn't mean they're lightly used. except you don't unless it's a new model, which is definitely not the GTX 1070

    PC Goes BERSERK Then Loses Signal!

    UPDATE: After all of that troubleshooting, turns out the culprit is in fact Corsair's icue software. I use it to change the RGB effects of my RAM sticks (not anymore) and when I uninstalled it and prevented it from booting on startup, the problem disappeared. I was skeptical if it was indeed the culprit at first because I couldn't understand how an RGB software would cause such an annoying crash to the whole system, but after reading a few forum posts here and there, it turned out that a lot of people were having similar issues from it as well. My RAM sticks aren't included in the compatibility chart of the Motherboard, so that might be the actual issue that causes the software to crash the system but at the end it's been fixed. Thank you two very much for your help as well @TheThymo @Metallus97

    My cousin has a Ventus 1660 and he would approve of that. It is noticeably noisy and its thermals aren't great

    I never said it's a risk. I said that some people regard it as a risk while others don't...
  14. Deathtroya

    in help of deciding between GTX 1660 Ti and RX 590

    That's the problem. You would never be able to know if they're simply used, or excessively mined 24/7. I don't know how many times you want me to say this, but...you regard mined cards as an opportunity, others like myself wouldn't be comfortable with such purchases
  15. Deathtroya

    Well, it's definitely subjective, but I honestly wouldn't go for a used GPU, especially if it's for a new or my first build... It matters because, well...you wouldn't know if it has been getting squeezed for months or if it was put on a dusty shelf by looking at it... You might see that as an opportunity, others might see it as a risk. It's subjective
