Ok so im building my first gaming PC and im a complete noob at it. My budget is 2000$ CAN max which is about 1500$ US. My new gpu choices were a GTX 1070 ti or a RTX 2070.
I've come across a guy who sells his 16x mining cards and he is asking 450$ US for an Asus gtx 1080 ti 11GB, or 505$ US for a Strix gtx 1080 ti. He says he bought them in may 2018 and had them running for only 2 months.
I need your opinions. Is it worth taking a risk considering this will be 650$ /675$ from my 2k$ CAN Budget. Or should i just stick with a brand new card to keep my mind and money safe?
