[Question] Is It Safe to Buy Used GPU From Cryptocurrency Miners?


Hello members,

Hi guys, I was wondering how safe it would be if I bought a mining gpu. Will it last long and be able to sufficiently game?

They’re run 24/7, so the fan might wear out a bit sooner than a card used mainly for gaming. On the plus side, it will probably never have been overclocked much, or pushed to high temperatures, because they’re all about power efficiency. I’d trust the chip itself more than a card used for gaming, but the fan slightly less. Overall I’d say go for it if you get a decent price.
