I have been offered a used EVGA GTX Titan X for $250. It's from a friend no mining and no overclocking, and I was wondering if you guys feel like this is a good deal?

I have been looking at a gpu for a secondary computer for a little bit now. My plan was to buy a new 3000 series gpu when they launch for my main gaming computer and move my current 1080ti to my secondary computer. It would be paired with a ryzen 3700x and the computer is mainly used for light edits and some 3D printing. My heart says jump on it but I am not sure if the card is at a good price or just overkill for a secondary PC. Looking for some extra opinions.

Do you think if he came down to $200 it would be a better deal then or pass on it since Maxwell is dated?
200$ is okay i suppose. Since it's on par with the gtx 1070 and you can find a gtx 1070 with that price but you have to do research on the seller. Since he's your friend, you can trust him. Another thing is that titan x consumes more power. But if you're not gaming on it, i dont think it would matter much. You're just using it for light edits after all. I have a gtx 980 ti and it still runs well today. The only downside is temps and power draw.

The titan x performs a bit worse than the 1080 ti. I think the titan x is more suitable for workload than gaming. Honestly if i were you, i would skip the 3000 series first unless you're playing at 4k. The 1080 ti still got some kick to it. So keep the titan x in the secondary pc for light edits and 3d printing. Maybe push for 200 dollars? But 250$ is quite a good deal. Is it maxwell titan x or pascal titan x?

After reading the other replies, i agree with them. My apologies. I did not consider the newer turing gpus. Get the 1660 super instead would be better if it's available for under 250$ in your region.

I think that it is a good deal. Just about a month ago EVGA was selling them for $299 with a 1 year warranty on their B-Stock. They are no longer listed unfortunately but they do have a killer deal on a CLC 280 & 360. The 12gb of ram is really nice in Flight Simulator. I am currently using a Titan X Pascal and love having the VRAM. Best of luck.
