So I'm pretty new with computers, and I'm searching for some components online to build my first pc. I was just browsing eBay today, and I came across an INSANE deal for an MSI geforce gtx 1080ti with 11 gigs of vram. And by insane, I'm talking 44 buckaroos refurbished. That just seems way too low a price for me, but the seller has a rep of actually delivering good products and the shipping is free, meaning that if it were fake, they wouldn't make me shell out any more money, so it leads me to believe that it's real. However, I can't be sure, and I'm on a pretty tight budget, so I think I just need to know if anyone thinks it might be a bad idea. Thanks!

 

Here's the eBay link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/MSI-GeForce-GTX-1080Ti-11GB-Aero-GDDR5X-Video-Graphics-Card-GPU/124194041490?epid=0&hash=item1cea8aae92:g:7QwAAOSw2PVexYCe

No doubt that a scam. No one in their right mind would let a legit 1080 Ti go for that cheap unless it was broken. That's around 1/10 the price its worth.

All of that feedback was from over a year ago so it's more likely that that this account was hijacked or the seller suddenly decided to go scammer, after a year of doing nothing.

I have seen fake items being sold on ebay.  You pay for nothing more than an empty shell.

This obviously has to be somebody trying to finesse. HOWEVER, if you got $50 to burn, why not take a stab at it? I'd use Paypal since its easier to get your money back if the seller is on some phuck-boi stuff.

Yeah, if you have $50 you want to let Paypal borrow for a while, do it.  

 

Makes perfect sense to spend $50, get a total piece of shit item, and then have to submit for the return of your money. 

 

100% good idea :)

That's why I said if he had $50 to burn...

 

Because you know, some people can afford to take risk. Relax. :)
