About this GPU opinion?

I might get this GPU: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GTX1050Ti-Game-Graphics...

What do you think guys? Is it possible to be faulty or not, cuz the price is quite low.

    I'm fairly certain it's a scam.

    -The I/O isn't right. There are no 1050 Tis made with VGA ports.

    -The brand name isn't real. Google auto corrects it to EVGA.

    -The PCB doesn't match. 1050 Tis have smaller PCBs with different layouts (compare it to this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N... for reference).

    -It has an SLI bridge connector. 1050 Tis don't support SLI, and because of this don't have bridge connectors. Since it's only a single-link (not high bandwidth), it's definitely old. The last cards to have single-link SLI connectors were the mid-range GTX 600 series.

    Edit: When I Googled the only really legible serial number on the back, the first result was a BIOS file for a GT 440.

    • Thanks for the info, I had a feeling it is to good to be true. :)

    It's a bit outdated. I suggest going for at least a GTX 1070 GPU since that is sufficient to running most games today at max graphics settings and it is much cheaper than the GTX 1080.

      Doesn't matter. The specs are not on par with the 1070 and 1080
