Overview

This document gived advice on purchasing GPUs for GP-GPu systems. If it appears to be skewed towards nvidia cards it's because most of the GPUs we've bought have been nvidia based CUDA cards. Feel free to restore the balance by purchasing cards from Intel or AMD.

Host computers

The main issue wrt purchasing GPUs is the not insignifican requirements of the host computer. Most GPUs will require a full length (or two) expansion bay hosting an 8x or a 16x PCI-E slot plus additional power and cooling requiring a 600W power supply it lease.
