I wouldn't even call it resale value or second hand value, just the fact that if you're not 100% sure that you want to use it for that purpose than a GPU card obviously serves many purposes. At the same time, there are people that May multi-purpose the machine and only use it for mining at certain times.

I'm new to the mining scene , last few days I tried to source for suitable GPU for mining like RX 470 or GTX 1070, but all of them out of stock , so after some research I bought mining card Nvidia P106-100 . After setting up, everything runs smooth, temperature and hash rate all are good and less power consume. I don't see any disadvantages of it compared to GPU besides without second hand value.

What do you prefer Mining card or GPU? and what are the cons of mining card besides the second hand value thingy?

For your purposes obviously you made the right choice, but for other people they may have not made the complete decision to go with crypto mining, and they may have other considerations.

When you run GPUs for a long period of time, 24/7, you are gradually wearing them down. However, ensuring the cards are receiving clean power from a quality PSU and are adequately cooled can help extend their expected life span. Every chip is different, so it's difficult to say exactly how long such a used card would last.
