Is it worth the risk to go used hardware that was high-end before? IE- 780ti for $70

What do you plan on doing with the computer?
Gaming?
Video editing?
Streaming?
General web browsing and light editing?

What you are trying to do will dictate the hardware needed.

Everything depends on what you are going to use this computer. If it is for gaming or working with such software as 3DSmax, Photoshop, and others, it will not be enough to have this hardware. You can use different software optimizers but it may not be enough. If you are going to use it for browsing, watching films, editing some documents so it will be probably enough.

The likable thing about computer parts is that they work or they don't. So there isn't too much risk. A 780ti in my opinion is too old and for $70 it isn't too good of a deal either. About a year ago I saw 970's going for that same price which is as old as I would go personally.
