ROG Strix RX VEGA56 gaming graphics cards are packed with exclusive ASUS technologies, including all-new MaxContact Technology that is 2X more contact with GPU for improved thermal transfer, and Patented Wing-Blade IP5X-Certified Fans for maximum airflow and longer fan lifespan. While ASUS FanConnect II features 4-pin, hybrid-controlled headers connected to system fans for optimal system cooling. ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED synchronisation enables a gaming system personalisation and VR-friendly HDMI ports let gamers easily enjoy immersive virtual reality experiences. ROG Strix RX VEGA56 also has GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster that provides intuitive performance tweaking and instant gameplay streaming.

Old technology now, but considering a 5700 costs at least 30-35% more for one with a decent cooler this seems quite a good price.

1 "good" and 5 "very good" at time of writing.

Vega 56 has been around £200 for new recently and wouldn't bother with one these days. Certainly wouldn't buy a good condition used one for £210-230 - bet it's been abused, also the Asus Strix was one of the worst third-party Vega cards as Asus forgot to sort out VRM cooling. If you are buying one, you want the OEM blower, Sapphire Pulse or NITRO or PowerColor Red Dragon series.

I agree with the above, this isn't a good price for a 2nd hand Vega 56.
I’ve had “very good” condition products including graphics cards from Amazon before that have been in perfect condition, just the box May have been opened.
The “good” “may have cosmetic damage”. For most people the card goes in the case and is never seen again.
The £200 Vega 56 that I’ve seen have been blower style.
Personally I’d get a new 1660 Super at the same price, but if you know what you are doing with undervolting etc, this will have better performance.

Blower-style Vega 56 is better than Asus's fake triple-fan nonsense that can't even cool the VRMs properly. Have you seen the performance under load?

Also, I don't have a problem with used cards though I've had a few 'box swaps' with Amazon - last one was a year ago where I orderered a 1070 and got a 1060 3GB and only noticed when I pulled the heatsink off and saw the missing chips. I don't care about cosmetic marks either, but if I was buying a 'used Vega' from Amazon it would need to be £160-180 before even considering it.
