Banging deal
Scam
Refurbs, no mention of the code needed and not a great cooler but the price is decent if able to get it

If this is a real listing and/or they’re not stolen then it’s an amazing price.

Edit - refurbished, so a no from me
Edited by: "daanuk" 6th Dec
Seller refurbished - should put that in title
Definitely going be on their last legs, previous mining card I imagine; work alright for two weeks and dies.
Previously listed them as a mining rig but no takers. Look at completed listings

Scam, don’t give it a chance
Very good price for a 1070ti, you would still pay much more for a new GTX1070. There are definitely some bargains to be had on eBay with graphics cards and PC parts in general. Utter bargain if the code works too though sadly it doesn't for me and a lot of ppl it seems looking at the other thread.

IMHO ppl worry too much about the history of GPUs, there have been a load of ppl testing ex-mining vs gaming cards and they work just the same. So long as the person mining with them didn't do anything stupid like block the fans or airflow and make them overheat there isn't really any damage mining can do, some say it's better than an ex-gaming card as the mining card is typically run under clocked so less overall strain on the card albeit for a longer period. Each to their own but if I saw a cheap ex-mining card I wanted I wouldn't think twice on it, though as I have a 980ti this wouldn't be a worthwhile upgrade for me personally.

Worth noting though that this has a £10 shipping charge though so isn't £269 or £238 total, unless you can collect it....

A mining card kept on 24/7 will also have had fewer thermal cycles. 20C to 105C then back again on a power component will eventually cause some damage to the board through thermal expansion. It's why PS3s had such a high failure rate, 8600Ms before them and so on.

There are lots of failure modes to consider with a GPU.

I bought an MSI 1070ti ARMOR for £299 (£265 after the recent 15% ebay code) from a seller who had around 6 of them on sale (and had sold more previously). The manufacturing date on the label showed it was about a year old and the MSI site says they come with 3 years warranty. Maybe it was a mining card but its having now until Christmas to recover. Voted hot.
Code doesn't work for me.
I also bought a 1070ti ex-mining card from eBay for around this price a couple of weeks ago. In my opinion better than buying from an ex gamer. If they’re doing it properly the cards should have been under-volted and kept at a consistent temperature. So far the card is great and is staying cooler and quieter than my previous card which I gamed on for over 2 years! Heat!
Ex-mining cards are usually ran constantly, even at normal/sub voltage and heat the general wear and tear is huge, and if its not refurbished by somewhere you can get a guarantee I would avoid this.
Nice price but not for me

Finally, some sense.

Code didn't work for me though.

The reason why these are available cheaply is not because they're knackered, but because the fall in price of cryptocurrencies has made it unprofitable to mine.

Yes. Most cards on eBay have been used for mining anyway. The card came out on November 2017, so at most 1 year old and MSI should usually do a 2 years of warranty. Maybe still 12 months remaining?
Picked up a mined EVGA 1070 few weeks off ebay for £208 (still had 2 years warranty and was in great condition) - no issues what so ever. Great deal, voted hot.
I tried to post this yesterday but the mods wouldn't allow it:
ebay.co.uk/itm…Bo2

It was £500, now £485.

There have been a few lower priced 2070s recently but the Aorus Xtreme range are arguably the best looking graphics cards ever! (If you haven't seen it yet, look it up on YouTube.) This particular model usually retails for around £580 so is quite a bargain at this price.

Almost seems to good to be true and I know the seller has 98.4% feedback out of 121 but won't you be covered by PayPal if anything?

Yep, covered by eBay for 30 days and Paypal for up to 180 days after too. While I personally couldn't care less how a GPU looks as I don't have a windowed case, or even the PC on the desk top, I must admit it is a really nice looking card. Still think the 2000 series is badly overpriced but if you must buy one that is probably a good one to get...
