    Plus if you suspect card was heavily (ab)used for mining you generally don't buy it, unless it is much cheaper. With random card you assume it was a mining card for the month after bubble pops (no matter what they claim). A few months after and you generally assume the person was a casual miner at worst, unless he is/was selling tons of cards.
    With such no video out card you can safely assume the card was mining eth 24/7 since purchase and value it at 0.
    Miners generally underclock/undervolt their cards ? Personally I'd be more wary of a gaming card, as it's far more likely to have been thrashed.
    To find the right answers you must ask the right questions.

    Mining will weed out the faulty/weak silicon!

    Looking forward to buying a bargain RX4/580 when the crash happens My 7950 is getting a bit long in the tooth
    IT middle management is just like Dungeon Keeper, but with technicians and purchase orders instead of imps and spells

    You might be waiting a while. Afaia stuff like ethereum changes it's base algorithm on a regular basis so that ASICs can't really be used. FPGAs maybe, but $$$ upfront makes that pretty unlikely. So while altcoins use FP32, and ASICs are non-viable, I'm afraid miners are going to hoover the things up like crazy. Probably RX Vega too, if it underclocks/undervolts like Polaris.
