I have two Inno 3D GTX 460 1GB GS purchased used August 2010 for Ł300 and they have been running 99% load 24*7 with no problems since August. An Inno GTX 480 was added in December but that was new and that has been running 24*7 99% load since then.|
Think to be honest it is just luck of the Draw.
Out of the 6 used GPU's I have purchased in the last twelve months only one failed 9800GX2 and that was I suspect my own fault. I removed the case off it to make it run cooler. But suspect I damaged it when I put the Case back on it 5 months later as the second 9800GX2 worked ok after re-fitting its case. But these do run hot 80oC+ under 99% load. Hence why I removed the cases.
