RX 580 Mining Cards Worth?

I'm making my first build using parts from my uncle kind of special. The motherboard is an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 and it has some nice blue accents, including the heat sinks. I really want a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 SE to go along with the blue, but I think $260-290 is a bit much. I've seen used mining cards for $150-190 that at least at first glance look to be in good condition. However, I am not experienced in how cryptocurrency mining affects a GPU, so could someone tell me why or why not it would be a good idea to get one of these?
