Hey guys i'm thinking about buying a GPU on Facebook Marketplace but have some questions regarding it's legitimacy I was hoping someone could help me.

The GPU in question is the msi geforce gtx 1050 ti 4gb lp.

I found one that sold on eBay has short brackets and the one i'm thinking about buying has longer brackets, Were these made slightly different?

Is there a way to identify from the chip set or motherboard? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here are 2 images from the one I found on eBay :

Most LP (low profile) cards ship with LP brackets and full-size. Can then be deployed in either server chassis or more traditional cases. Nothing here is a red flag, beyond the potential it doesn't include the full height bracket, assuming you need it.
 
Ask for a picture of the cable ports. The back of the Facebook card does not match the ebay one. The stickers bottom left on ebay one is bottom and to left of the middle of four screws. The Face book one sticker is in between the screws. The printing of fce- 10 with circle arrows around it and triangle with check mark and CE is down the middle right of the eBay card. On the facebook card it is printed on upper left corner of the back and there is no 10 within the circle of arrows.

When I do a google image search of this card why is it some come with an extended bracket and some come with a short one, Were there multiple models of this GPU?

Does anyone have one?
