I have the opportunity to purchase a secondhand madcatz fight stick with full sanwa buttons for 70 Euros, I'm a keyboard player and to be honest i find myself comfortable enough with my 10 euros trust keyboard, BUT, due to the keys being small and really close i had to resort to macros for things like, tag,throws etc.. and playing with 8 or 9 buttons is a bit of an annoyance so i was wondering about buying a hitbox (but it's impossibile to find one secondhanded in my country and they cost a ton when new) or a stick, what i'm looking for is primarily large buttons in a convenient layout but at the same time i'm scared for the stick to require large motions in order to inpput the usual qcf,dp commands.

No. If you like what you have, great. Buy one if you want one, don't if you don't.

The general answer is no.

The specific answer is it might be a good idea. A good Madcatz fightstick for like, less than 100 USD? Depends entirely on if it works, and what systems it works on. Also your money. For me, buying that would be no problem. For you, don't know.

This is the stick

It's a customized xbox 360 Street Fighter IV wiht full sanwa components, what intrigues me about fight sticks in general is the "response" of the buttons compared to the keyboard (at least it seems like that in the videos)
