Because this second hand, I don't know how it will perform on gaming,
And I cant test it for hours,
Is there any programs that tests the products overall performance and says if its good or not?

No clue yet, but because this is second hand, even a great hdd could be damaged, I want to be able to test it with a program(If there is any)

Budget is $20, buying hdd's worth at least $60
CrystalDiskInfo.

Will tell you the power on hours.
And if you know how to decipher the S.M.A.R.T. values for that drive, it may give some insight.
