So I've been looking to upgrade my GTX960 for as cheap as possible since the computer overall is fairly outdated therefore I'll eventually just build a new one but in the mean time I've been scouting used markets in my country and found someone selling a "broken" RX 480 8GB for 50 euros.

The seller describes it as the fans spinning, light is ON yet Windows doesn't recognize the GPU. I asked him if BIOS recognizes it and he's uncertain/didn't check.

With that in mind, if someone more experienced in this could shed a light on whether they think it'll be something minor such as wrong drivers/outdated BIOS or hardware related issues. Thank you!!
