i want to upgrade my gpu and found a rx 570 red devil that have been used for cryptocurrency mining (eth) at least 7-10 month
https://www.tokopedia.com/zevan/power-color-rx570-4gb-rx-570-4gb-triple-fan-red-devil?trkid=f=Ca0000L000P0W0S0Sh,Co0Po0Fr0Cb0_src=recent_page=1_ob=23_q=rx+570_po=6_catid=319&whid=0

and does that gpu will bottleneck my system (because my motherboard only have pcie 2.0 x16)
spec :
i5 4460
12gb ram
asrock H81M-VG4 R2.0
500w 80+ digital alliance psu
thx and sry for bad english :p
 
The GPU would be pretty balanced with your system. PCI_E is backward compatible, so a PCIE 3.0 card will work fine in a 2.0 slot.

But personally, I wouldn't buy a second hand GPU, and certainly not a mining one. Yes, it's cheap, but it very well may fail before it should.

Throw away this garbage PSU first. It's not actually a 500W PSU; it has 20A on the +12V rail, so it's essentially a 240W PSU. And even worse, they appear to have faked an 80+ badge.

Notice that they post a PDF of the 80 Plus testing for their PSU.

And now notice that they actually photoshopped in their PSU over the actual one tested (which even then wasn't a good PSU).

Then they "helped themselves" to a better 80 Plus, giving a Bronze that even the PSU they faked was not awarded.

Immediately dispose of this PSU in an environmentally safe manner.
