Yes, but could be risky

Besides losing warranty, you don't know if it has been used for mining. Checking reviews on the seller might give you an idea of their reputation re: used items. Also check conditions if they make you eligible for return/refund after testing the item and finding it not at par with your expectations.

Answer
Refurbished RX 580

Dear Fella,
You are correct that GPUs are very expensive but refurbished are good or low budget users. It is ok to buy and use Refurbished RX 580 for your gaming PC. But before buy from any online store, you may need to check the product reviews on that website/store and also read their refund, terms and conditions policies and etc.
