Is there any real reasoning behind that or is that just considered the wrong thing to do?

Because over half the time things are way overpriced on Ebay, and because Ebay is just junk these days. It's like trying to find good deals of computer parts on CL.

Yes, they will work fine.

Ok, and what would I have to do if I buy a GPU after I have the whole computer set up? Would it just be plug and play?

Just plug it in, plug the power cables in, and boot it up. Then you have to install the correct drivers.
