Should I use used ebay parts for my gaming pc?

I am building a gaming pc, but I am not sure whether to buy some parts off of ebay. I want to do this so that I can reduce the cost of the pc. If you say I should buy parts off of ebay, are there any parts to be careful when buying used?

    Buying off ebay is a crapshoot, especially for used parts. It is what it is.

    If you have to still do it this way, make sure that MOSFETS, ICs, cards and diodes are properly packaged in ESD packaging. Static discharges will blow them very easily, and you'd never know.

    I wouldn't trust pre-owned parts.

    There are usually reasons as to why the original owners got rid of them.

    No you shouldn't.
