I have a GIGABYTE AORUS 3060 Ti, some guy wants to trade, no cash, for an MSI Trio 3070.
am I missing something or is this a good deal?

totally sus, but if the person is ok with you testing and checking it first i dont see why it's a bad deal.

but one reason i can see them doing that is for mining purposes. i did a quick bit of research and apparently the mining profit of a 3060 ti and a 3070 is on par with each other and ofc with the 3060 ti having lower tdp anyone with electricity concerns like a miner would rather have the 3060 ti
but that's just my speculation, so take it with a grain of salt

Yeah ty.
 
Looks like decision is already made but even if a genuine offer I believe you would both end up with products not officially supported by the warranty as I don’t believe it would be transferable. For that alone I wouldn’t do it.

Why your friend wouldn't just RMA the vastly superior and more expensive card is also a suspect question, no sensible person would downgrade not only in horsepower but also resale value in the current market, it makes absolutely no sense. If the trade was well intent they'd simply let you test it, the fact that they wont makes it super suspect. The only thing I can imagine is that they've bought it and encountered some incompatibility, be it PSU, case size or some other factor. Without more information or a visual on the actual card it's a no deal.

He won't let you test it and wants to downgrade

The ansver is obvious i guess, he can sell it for cash to get a 3060 Ti and save the rest, or maybe it is a stolen card

if they're trading you a 3070 for a 3060 Ti there is most likely something wrong with it. It is probably broken, was used for mining or it may not even be a 3070.
