So this guy is selling me a GTX 1080 TI used. I am buying for 500$ is this good. How do I do transitions and stuff? This is the build someone made for me but I will replace the GPU for the used 1080 TI is this compatible and stuff? BTW the guy said the GPU has two years of warranty. Also should I get anything differnet in my build ?

I don't believe MSI's warranties are transferable.

If he's agreed on $500 shipped and he doesn't even know where it's being shipped to, it's a scam.

for warranty you just don't tell the manufacturer you bought it used and its fine, say it was a gift so you don't need to show a receipt or POP

 

ask for pics with time stamps and pay with paypal only , even if it is a scam he can take the money and run but you will still get your money back just the paypal he is using will go negative.

They usually require proof of purchase regardless of whether it was a gift or not.
