GPU artifacting issue with 2080ti

I don't know much about PCs but I just bought a 2080ti 


1) The GPU doesn't comply with Nvidia graphics when downloaded. When the drivers are downloaded it doesn't recognize the other monitors and the resolution is stuck at 800x600.
2) The GPU has shown signs of artifacting (shown in images) when set to 1920x1080 or when restarting the PC
side note: prior to this I have wiped all other drivers and used DDU.

Is there anyway I can fix this? or was this a mining GPU at one point? (seller said it was refurbished, although this doesn't indicate it was fixed)

(All answer online have been null and do not give me a solution except for taking it apart and refurbishing it myself.)

Looks like the card is not artifacting when running in very low resolution (last picture). I think this is because the load on the GPU is so minimal, that it is not enough to start artifacting. To be honest mate, unfortunately, I'm pretty sure your card is just dead. Bugged drivers or not, those artifacts are wild. Can you return it to seller?

Yeah I contacted the seller, I'm planning on returning it and buying a new one. I'm going to microcenter tomorrow just for a final diagnosis to make sure there isn't anything I can do.

I ran GPU-Z and this is what I got, I compared it and it seems normal. I'm going to microcenter to see if they can fix it and see if its a hardware issue, thanks for the suggestions
