Is a OEM GTX 1660 worth it?

making a budget build computer rig for around 600$ and knowing today's prices in Graphics cards are actually a yikes i have to go for a second hand graphics card. There's a local offer for a OEM nvidia Graphics card 1660 ti for $100 and so far the seller says there was no problems with it so far. (for reference i looked up the card he selling and the specs are are here https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/dell-gtx-1660-ti-oem.b8118 ) Now i'm looking for second opinions and if i do buy it. I'm looking for also suggestions on what CPUs you guys recommend as well as any other parts you guys suggest i can put in for this build.

That's a pretty great deal for it, IF it works.

My suggestion, stress test it hard, before you buy it.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

yeah, If I do plan on buying the card, gonna install it in a benchmark system I have on deck to make sure nothing is wrong with the card and test it there first before anything with the card.

If eBay is anything to go by, the sold items start at 100$ (oddly, for a Dell OEM version) upward to many many hundreds of dollars.

Did you ask why he's selling it?

 

Seems decent if it's working fine and works with standard stuffs

My PC: Desky | Beddie | Miney 01 | Money 01 | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

1660 Ti for $100 is a v good price as long as it is working. Also if you choose to upgrade to a 30 series card later you have a good chance of making most of your money back...

I"m going to disagree here. I have a single fan 1060 3GB and I *never* hear the fan running. It idles at around 50C and seems to top out under artificial stress tests at 75C, but under normal gaming loads, not much more than 60C.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Is that in winter?,In summer temps are usually 10C+ higher than in winter.

85C is high,90C is very high temperature.

Winter yes, but I keep my house at 75 degrees in the winter, and 80 in the summer (I like heat) 

You'll note I said nothing about 85 or 90. ONly under artificial stress tests does it get anywhere near warm.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds
