Good luck with that. The current GPU market is an utterly fubarred mess with everything not comically slow new and out of stock, scalped at 30-50% markup, or used and probably as expensive as when new.
It's been a perfect storm of NVidia's previous generation being a rather meh improvement leading to a lot fewer upgrades, the current one being an awesome upgrade that even people who bought a year ago want to trade up from, and crimecoin prices booming leading to miners buying anything they can get their filthy hands on to run proof of pollution powered money printers.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Repositories? Seeing the mess that NPM can create, I genuinely wonder WTF happened when I wasn't looking. I have coworkers putting together a small-ish web site, and their source tree contains well over 100,000 files. I so don't want to live in that world.
However, I do have a 55" TV monster hooked up to it so I can sit back on my bed and use it.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Absolutely! 512GB for now but right now a 2TB one can be had for about $200. Frankly, there's no sense in not using them in a modern PC. Windows boot is faster than my post screen i think. it's hard to tell. Everything is instant.
GoDaddy's about the worst - really expensive. Cheap come-ons to get in newbies and then they, for the most part, "got 'em" as transferring is beyond what most are willing to do (a well known business axiom). Then they sock it to them with high renewals.
I use NameCheap to host a website (ca. US$ 30/yr) and four domains. Includes free email forwards - even if you don't buy anything from them. They assume you're smarter than a GoDaddy customer so it's a little less straight forward. I adapted to CPanael pretty quickly.
I've used HostGator for years and they have good uptime and decent rates. I agree their customer service has a lot of room for improvement. Then again, I run on their Windows hosting platform. They are obviously more LAMP stack oriented (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) and their Windows services play second fiddle. But I have worked with several web hosts recently and HostGator is certainly not alone in their shift away from more automated and less personal customer service.
