So there is a RX 6800XT 16GB for 200€, owner says that its not showing picture and fans does not spin, I read all around forum that this is a common issue and that some people even manage to fix it on one or another way. Should I consider buying it?

Unless you know exactly what is wrong with it, and you know exactly how to fix it....No.

no, just save up and buy brand new. I've seen a fair share of these "buy cheap gpu that has problems story", and it often ends in despair.. for the buyer.

I would say no. This isn't an iPhone with a cracked screen that you can just take to an apple store to repair for a price. There is a very high chance that this thing is nothing more than a paper weight that looks like a nice graphics card.
