I want advice for what i should i look out for when buying a used gpu. The seller tests it and shows me that it boots and installs the driver. What can i do to assure that i am buying something that can last for at least 1.5 years. Overclocking is not an option or running a benchmark. Because i bought a gtx 590 from the seller and while testing when he saw the msi komluster. He was not happy. The gtx 590 is working just fine and i think it had been 6 months since i bought it.

It's used. Just like a car. There's no way to determine lifespan, no guarantees it'll last 1.5years or 1.5months.

If the seller is honest about its prior use, prior maintenance, there's hope that it'll last a good long while but other than that, it's pot-luck.
