Rage Time:

I ordered a GPU (EVGA 1060 6GB SC) from Amazon on the 27rd of June
>Sorry xir your order was canceled. The third party seller is not in stock.
Ok ... try out other vendors find Sears/Circuit City (kek they still exist?!)
>Sure we have your GPU in stock and will ship to you on the 5th of July

.... Captain's Log: July 5th 2017 ....

I get this email from Sears
>Here's an UPDATE for you, xir!
>The ship date for your GeForce GTX 1060 Graphic ... that you ordered on Tue, Jun 27, 2017 has been delayed.
>We don't have an expected ship date yet, but we'll let you know as soon as we do.

>We're very sorry for this inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience.

>Thank you for shopping with us,
>Your Sears Team

W H A T T H E F U C K !!!!

What should I do? Should I wait it out? How long will that take? I paid $300 for the GPU and I realize that's about $50 more than usual. I have a new PC to build but no GPU

If I browsed /fit/ more I would punch a hole in my wall because I'm so angry

Should I take a GPU from an older computer, build the PC, install Debian, and then swap out the GPUs when my EVGA 1060 comes in?

The way the market looks like is that a GPU will be unavailable at MSRP for a long while as etherum and bitcoin have no real signs of crashing yet.

Just riding over with a cheap old gpu is your best bet.

It is likely that the time to buy will only be upon the next releases of GPUs unless a crash occurs.

Keep looking, trust you will find them for good prices. Not everyone selling their GPU is aware of the mining craze. I live in Europe and every once in a while I find insane deals on Fury and GTX 9xx cards. You just have to keep a watchful eye for such deals because they disappear fast.

My program is called Biomedical Sciences. I have a BS in Biology, did some wet bench stuff in undergrad but quickly moved into bioinformatics (learned Perl: don't ostracize me)

In grad school I stuck with bioinformatics and use machine learning to characterize structural variation and it's implications to psychiatric disorders, specifically autism and schizophrenia.

I'm currently working on the "3rd" generation of sequencing technologies: long-read sequencing (Oxford Nanopore, PacBio SMRT). I have some ideas I want to work out with deep learning and characterizing structural variation using the newer version of sequencing.

The grant I'm in gives me $1200 a year to spend on research supplies. I was late to the game getting the parts for my PC, my friend in the same grant got her 1060 6Gb for $250 two weeks before the 27th

Around $200 a week with the current prices, but I'm probably gonna YOLO it and hold for a bit. It's hard to source power supplies at the moment, so I can't set up more rigs although I have the cards.
