Hmm? no such thing.
Buying only what one's can afford is smart
Buying only what one's need is wisdom

If it's me, personally, I will get the 6600, mainly because it's newer and therefore (most likely) will have longer support & warranty.
Also, I tend to avoid refurbished stuffs, unless it's refurbished by NVIDIA themselves, and have a clear, good RMA rule.

And, if you are unfamiliar with GPU testing, or in a country where RMA is troublesome, etc, I'd suggest avoiding used or refurbished stuffs.
Especially if the one refurbishing it is questionable.

Is it that bad to buy a used gpu? I want to buy a 1080 Ti and I don't know if I should. Right now I have SLI 970's that my uncle gave me for free (which was a pretty good deal) because he upgraded to a 3090. I also don't know where I should even buy a 1080 Ti.

Depends, if you get a full warranty (for 1 year or so) from a trustworthy seller then why not... except in your case you say you want a 6600 also and a new/modern card just makes a lot more sense imo.

IMHO, Not really if you can deal with the 3 IFs
IF the circumstance are right (right seller, right price, right item condition)

IF you know how to properly look for fault
And IF you are willing to deal with the trouble if it is faulty


The one you linked though is Refurbished, usually it means something about it has been replaced. It could be just the fans, but it also could be the capacitors/resistors on the PCB, could be the copper line tracing on the PCB broke and they repaired it with a jumper wire. Which most often you can't see until you take off the heatsink, or atleast the backplate.

When done by non big vendor, it is usually done so by cannibalizing other broken GPU (at the very least that is how it is in my country).

Save yourself the trouble, atleast with the new one you have full warranty. Which means you can RMA if it's defective.
