Buying a couple used graphics cards from xfurbish I want to make the view explaining the do’s and don’ts what to look for why you should be getting a used graphics cards so first of all number one the biggest thing I want to talk about is everybody’s saying don’t gain you use graphics cards and in fact the matter even if you got them for minors there’s a couple of good to situations where they’ll probably be fine for what you’re doing so the first thing I’m gonna recommend.
Is why you should be any use graphics cards so maybe you’re trying to I don’t know cut down some of the prices you’re trying to get like a temporary graphics card that will only be with you for maybe a year to maybe half a month and that’s what you’re planning on using it for is a temporary graphics card that would be fine the biggest issue when it comes down to use graphics cards is longevity you’re probably looking at a shortening even if they’re an extremely heavy minor they run the card 24/7 you’re still looking at around a maybe half-life decreased so if the cards only three months three years old or what’s only just released this year it’s three years old and you’re probably looking pretty good so one of the big things I want to talk about if you’re looking to get a card permanently there’s a couple of tricks you can actually do to keep a good you know way to determine how these parts are where to get these cards and how well the car was taken care of so the biggest.
Thing I want to talk about is my experience we’re getting this graphics card so this is a used Card this is actually like two or three years old what’s a six sixty or something but my point being is this card if you just got the card alone I’d be a little bit concerned because you know the card seems like you know it’s got some dust and it looks like it was run pretty heavily well what I want to keep note is I actually have the box with the instructions and everything else in here now I have some of the other components for this this mess over here I actually have the shroud for the this lovely thing right here is with my project in the making so it’ll just we’ll just leave it at that but I have the whole box and all the instructions and I bought all that birth whatever I bought it for back whenever I got it well my point being is if someone takes the time and effort to keep the box with them and you can get the box with the graphics card in the original box especially for minors is really difficult to store all these massive amount of boxes.
If you’re heavily working the graphics cards and you’re just getting more and more which is the only which is extremely high trend with minors they completely throw out the boxes because there’s no use so you can get a graphics card with a box you’re pretty much you know guaranteed that the person at least took care enough and you know thought highly enough their graphics card will the same it you know maybe resale and they’re not necessarily going out and you know putting a lot of like it feels like they took care of it now another thing I want to talk about is why you shouldn’t get a high end graphics card if you’re paying more than $500 for a huge graphic store that I mean like a 1080i or Titan that’s what I that’s what you probably should consider just getting a brand-new one or getting them all down because the high end graphics cards are really hit hard right now with the cryptocurrency mining and so if you’re out there and you’re trying to go buy a graphics card and you know you want to get these high-end cards yes you can save up a little bit more and get that but it’s not really worth the issue of these cards some of these cards especially I would also say the blower for style cards are a lot more safer in this situation because the the miners tend to get the non-blower style cards because they have higher clock speeds and they also tend to overclock them with the special coolers and stuff so if you’re getting a blower style high-end card that would probably be a little bit more safer actually majority bit safer now the final thing is if you’re getting a card and it’s blower style and everything else and you want to get a 1080i something like that and you want to get like the full blower style I just say save up and get the model off and save up and get the model you can buy or save up and get the model above and actually buy a brand new because when you get into a high-end market with the specialized fans and the high clock speeds that’s where you really get into territory people overclock.
Potential and especially when they’re mining and you’re really in a dangerous situation where the card may only last you one or two years that’s fine with you then yes but for the matter of refurbished graphics card india you know if you’re mean this card probably won’t soon hear for maybe four years tops and my point being is the card itself will probably last two years but if you’re gonna upgrade in two years and it might be worth it but still again get a brand new card and so that way it doesn’t break.
