I ordered a dual fan MSI gaming x 3060Ti on eBay for 325 plus shipping 350 to my door. I open the package today and It is in fact actually a triple fan MSI Gaming Z Trio 3070 lol did I just come up hard? Or is the difference negligible?

Is it brand new?

Just make sure to verify that it is indeed a 3070 with GPU-Z, and run some benchmarks. I've seen an uptick in scammers trying all sorts of things.
No it is 2nd hand but it looks very good condition looks pretty mint externally everything in box all accessories gpu bracket etc everything box was in mint condition also lol What are prices on 3070 new? I don't imagine that they are $325-350 dollars brand new?

Got a brand new 3060 ti founders for $400 flat from best buy a couple weeks ago. But that sounds like a great deal for a used 3070 as long as it was not completely burnt out mining.

It is the LHR version so maybe it hasn't been mined on at all?

Yea chart shows that It's an upgrade from the 3060Ti, thanks for that mega comparison chart. Good confirmation.
Besides what HardOCP used to be years ago, Guru3d and their reviews is easily my favorite site. The graphics card and cpu shootout that shows the big list makes things easy to view.

Ya it was especially good at making me realize that a 3070 is basically the exact same performance of a 2080Ti albeit with better ray tracing support and HDMi 2.1 to hit 144hz on 4k.
