I just recently bought a used MSI GTX 980 Ti from a seller on eBay. Fortunately for me everything was 100% perfect. But I've been burned before for sure. I never buy from anyone with less than 100% feedback, at least 50 Reps and was an active buyer/seller within the last six months. Those simple rules of thumb have served me well. Plus eBay policies have turned so "buyer oriented" lately, it's actually worse to be a seller than a buyer.
Holds on funds, illegitimate claims of non-receipt, or stuff being DOA. Even if you are stiffed, you can still file a dispute if the item you received was materially different in description or working condition. A lot of hassle I know, but better to get the funds back eventually than to just accept the loss. I'm also very careful about how I fund my purchase................
Thanks buddy. That will be my next stop after here and over at OC.net.
Just figured I'd try here at my home community first. I probably should have sold them a few years back when I might have gotten a fair return on them. But they worked flawlessly for the games I play at 144Hz and 1920x1080 resolution. The only thing that prompted a change was that the cooler on the video card in my HTPC gave up the ghost and I couldn't find a replacement cooler. Figured I'd be cute and use that as an excuse to switch from SLi in my gaming rig and use a little newer card there, and then put one of the GTX 670s in my HTPC.
As my luck would have it, the GTX 670 was about 1" too long to fit into my smaller HTPC case. And dummy me............ I never thought to check the fit before I bought a used 980Ti for my gaming machine
