so is the d300 graphic cards fine. buying a used one on eBay and was thinking of getting one with d300s with the ram and hard drive specs i wanted.
i can get others but thought the d300 gpu would be ok as well so i don't have to fix gpus or upgrade anything

D300 is the worse MacPro6,1 GPU by far. Worse drivers/performance and crashes a lot. It's based on HD 7890 and even the PC version is 💩.

D500 made after 2018 is the sweet spot performance wise and the best one you can get for the money.

Decode the SSN from the Mac, will get an approximated production date.

The SSN is there, go to a decoding site and get the production date.
