Is £495 for a used MSI 1080 Ti Gaming X a good deal?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A guy on eBay was selling his used 1080 `Ti for £530 but I managed to shave £35 off via the offer system to £495. Is this a good deal and should I go for it?

it wasn’t used in mining, is in perfect condition and the proof of purchase will be included 

should I go for it?

Pretty good for a Gaming X.

Well, you can get new 1080ti's for as low as £600 now. Not that one specificaly, but still.

 

IMO , its not worth it. The gaming X iirc just has a slightly high factory OC. Not really worth the premium imo.

 

if it were me, i'd buy a new £600 1080ti over a used £495 one.

if it were £400, then it would be worth it.

 

You could argue that a new gaming X would cost alot more ~£800, but i dont think its worth that to begin with.

I sold the 1080 Ti's I had from earlier this year for 450 USD so that seems a little high.
