You can get new ones for just a few euros more, so no, it's a bad price. Don't buy it.

It was more of an assumption because, in Canada which generally doesn't have great prices on computer parts, you can easily get 1050s for $150, which is just under 100 euros.

 

It also heavily varies on location, so I'd just look on Amazon or something.

I'm not sure why you are using Euros as unit when looking at ebay.co.uk?

VAT is lower in Canada than the UK or most of Europe.

Because item is located in Lithuania, which uses Euros as a currency

Cheapest 1050s start at €134, so it is roughly one third cheaper than a new one.

I mean, it's totally fine for us to work on british pounds. It's just math.

 

I just checked that the cheapest new 1050 cost 120 pounds, so that used card at 70 is a decent deal. There's an RX 570 4G for 150 pounds, so definitely don't by the 1050 new.

 

@Quadriplegic I'm confused
