UPDATE

Nvidia is sadly no longer selling their GPUs on their own store, for the foreseeable future all Founders Edition cards will be sold via 3rd party retailers (I believe only in North America) as such this project is deprecated. I thank everybody for all their support and feedback throughout the process of writing and maintaining Clerk. I'm going to be deprecating this project but will leave the code up as a historical reference for the future in case NVIDIA starts to sell cards again using their same digital storefront.

Background

nvidia-clerk was written in response to the recent NVIDIA RTX 3080 release debacle. During the launch, multiple different groups of scalpers used private bots to procure large quantities of NVIDIA GPU's and most consumers were left without being able to purchase the product. This project will provide a short term solution so that customers can ensure they can buy a GPU and compete with these scalpers.

NVIDIA Clerk doesn't purchase products for customers, it simply tracks the available inventory from NVIDIAs APIs when a card becomes available it can automatically notify you or open your browser to the page with a cart containing your item.

FAQ

❗️ Before you or ask for help go get the latest release! and check Discord by clicking the chat button above.

exec: "google-chrome": executable file not found in %PATH%

The path to google chrome needs to be added to the path. While reinstalling Chrome can fix it, a quick search on Google will show you how to do exactly this.

My environment variables are being unset

You can add them to your .bashrc or .zsh files and be sure to export them. Sourcing the files and/or restarting your window will load them. That said, the easiest way to do this is just to wrap these values in a wrapper script. eg.

set TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID={YOUR_TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID}
set TWILIO_TOKEN={YOUR_TWILIO_TOKEN}
set TWILIO_SOURCE_NUMBER={YOUR_TWILIO_PHONE_NR}
set TWILIO_DESTINATION_NUMBER={THE_NUMBER_TO_WHICH_TO_SEND_THE_NOTIFICATIONS}

nvidia-clerk-windows.exe -region={REGION_CODE_HERE} -model=3080

The log says "Access Denied" and then quits

This can be caused by a myriad of things. However, here are some items to check:

  1. Is your antivirus blocking it? Some AVs will copy the threatening file into a separate directory and give a notification
  2. Is your firewall blocking access?
  3. Do you have the right permissions to run this program?

It's still not working...help!
