1. Can an end-user like me claim warranty on OEM versions? The model in question is a Zotac GTX 1080. The retail ones with 3 years warranty cost at least 5-7k extra
2. Since I don’t plan on overclocking at all will the difference in warranty period be worth fussing over?
I plan to use it for 3 years at a minimum. I have a huge backlog of games released in the last few years. So I don’t care if I can’t play the latest AAA titles in the future.

Exactly as @runjesh explained. There is no retail packaging, product documentation etc. Very barebones. In this case the OEM is Zotac. Its a slightly lower clocked version which they ship in their UCFF/SFF PCs.

No. Integrated ones are that are included in the CPU package itself and previously on the mobo. Discrete implies a separate daughter card altogether.

No warranty on oem gpus. Though you may register it by making a forged invoice copy but at the time of claiming warranty it may be rejected as they maintain a database of gpus sold / imported for retail sale.

Yeah. That’s along expected lines. If the price hasn’t been as good I wouldn’t have bothered at all. Thanks.

If the price you think is right just get the GPU … bought lots of such items through eBay even a motherboard and most of them worked without a issue. First safe bets are CPU and ram, next comes GPU and motherboards. Anyway, do keep in mind if the price difference is minimal say ~5k then getting a new one makes more sense. Many miners are dumping their over used GPUs for sell so my hunch is those GPUs won’t be very durable.

How do you buy these OEM stuff online? How do we judge that the seller is genuine and not selling fake/defective item? I also need to buy a low-mid range graphic card.
