I was wondering if you would think buying a $250 Radeon VII graphics card from eBay would be a good idea. My Asus Strix RTX 3070's two fans are busted; thus I need an inexpensive replacement GPU. For gaming and digital art/animation (using Adobe Suite, Clip Studio, Toon Boom, and other 2D and 3D apps), I need a GPU. Should I just go ahead and use PayPal's 4 payment installment plan to seek for an RTX 3090 or 6800–6800 XT on eBay if Radeon VII (which was likely used for mining a bad idea)?

Another choice I was considering was getting a good RTX 3070 and running both cards in my computer to speed up productivity and digital art programs.

Current PC Build
Ryzen 9 5950x
Asus Tuff Gaming Pro WiFi II x570
96GB DDR4 Ram @ 3600 mhz
1TB & 500GB SSD
4TB Hard Drive
1200w corsair psu HX series
Asus strix RTX 3070 (2 broken not functioning fans)

I wouldn't trust any card that was desirable for mining.
Also note that the Paypal 'payments' plan may have them run a credit check on you.

Why not just replace the fans?

If the card works otherwise here’s an option.

I’ve got a 6700xt and I’ve had good luck with it so I think a 6800xt or 6900xt should do well also. The Radeon has probably been mined on.
I'd seggest the RX 6900 XT, you got to consider even if it where a mined gpu, some gpu's build quality and the riggs they are used in run so good that one could easily pick up one of these and have a great performer.
