Second hand EVGA 1070ti

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was in the market to score a second hand 1070, when I came across a second hand 150 euro's (USD 166) 1070 Ti (offered at 210 euro's, haggled down to 150).

Given this isn't a scam (seller is active multiple years and has good reviews) and the card is not damaged (I will be sure to bring a USB stick along with some sort of stress test program; please give me advice on good, portable free stresstest programs!), is this a good buy? The buy still has to go down

Unigine Heaven is one of the easiest and best one to get a load on it and test it and make sure its all good.

It's an excellent deal. Just make sure you run Unigine Heaven and the latest version of GPU-Z. The first should detect performance problems and the second should detect a spoofed vBIOS.

Nice, thank you for the good advice. I did buy second hand graphic cards in the past, never got scammed, but given this is rather a higher end card with prices on second hand websites floating around the average of 250 euro's for the none-Ti version (which is ironic given you can get new 1070 cards on amazon for under 200 euro's), I want to be doubly sure. The seller looks trustworthy (and relative close to where I life), just don't want to take any chances.

i'd say unigine (heaven/superposition/valley) for stressing, gpu-z to check if it's real and maybe 3dmark if you want to test performance

 

and for the love of god, don't use furmark

Yes, all those poor ground up animals, and for what, a benchmark software? Shameful.

I've bought a crap load of stuff used, and in my experience, GPU's are the safest thing to buy used from someone local.  If there's something wrong with it, the seller is more likely to be unaware of that beforehand, rather than them trying to cheat you.While online places like eBay have no shortage of scammers, when you're meeting face to face the person is more likely to be unaware that they sold you something bad.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I did have a 1050 send over once; I figured for the price and given the seller had a good reputation I wouldn't be risking anything. Turned even out it was a 1050 Ti, which was a nice surprise as it was not advertised as such. Just to underline what you said: sellers are often unaware of what they even have!

 

I'll be meeting up the guy next Tuesday to test out the card and if everything goes right, to seal the deal. I'll make a quick update then, maybe also add in some tips and tricks for others for buying second hand.
