in my experience, ex mining card are fine, had a few with no issues so far. they usually aren't overvolted or anything, the only thing to watch for is custom vbios, which you would need to flash back to stock.

If you don't mind buying anything that are used. Then yea, they are great and pretty good value too for what they are. In my experience of buying this kind card for other people, none of them ever failed. But I do suspect that will probably fail are the fans 'cause they are literally used 24/7

Remember! Reality Is An Illusion, The Universe Is A Hologram, Buy GOLD! Byeeee!!!

For the most part, mining cards are fine as long as they weren't kept in a place with high humidity.

I've seen some photos of mining cards all corroded because who knows where they kept them and what cooling they used.

The stars died for you to be here today.

A locked bathroom in the right place can make all the difference in the world.

Use is use. I’d only care depending on the actual model. Seen a high fan failure rate for the Msi stuff. So I’d stay away from that.
