When buying used you're always taking a risk. However if it means saving money. Then it's a risk some are willing to take.

On the flipside which retailers can you purchase from? Maybe I can find something new with a better price tag. Also what CPU do you have? The ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard supports pile driver. AKA AMD FX series of cpu. Which could create a potential bottleneck. In that case. A RX 570 might be a better and cheaper option. Mostly putting an emphasis on the cheaper part. And your not wrong if you can get a used RX 580 for $150 or less that works just fine. I see a lot of those blue sapphire gpus on ebay when I look.
