I mean I read your post but it never clarified that you weren't going to use it for mining.

Some people will tell you video cards used for mining are perfectly fine and I disagree completely.

Think about it. If you're going to buy a used car, would you rather pay $8k for one that has been treated normally or $7k for one that has been driven by a 16 year old who admitted they abused it and every time they accelerated they floored it, never changed the oil, and ran over the biggest potholes and speed bumps they could find for fun? Really not at all worth it. It may be fine, but it's probably not going to be.
