NVIDIA GPU Box:
After a $150 bill with AWS (I forgot to aws-stop), I decided it was time to build my own GPU/CUDA box. Couple of questions:
1) By mistake, I purchased three NVIDA Titan XP cards instead of the one I had intended. I have only installed one on my GPU Box. Should I return two of these, or can I use these on the same box seamlessly? I've tried to research this question online and I am now as "clear as mud". My only application for CUDA is deep learning. If I can use an extra card without changing my code, I may keep one. If I have to code to the device, I will return these cards. (Does the answer change if I were to switch from Theano to Tensor Flow?)
2) On my GPU Box, I used Ubuntu 17.04. I'm having some issues. Is it worth tying to make things work or just retreat to 16.04? (I haven't spent enough time on trying to make it work, so I will report back as to my progress.)
I have been able to activate an AWS p2 gnu instance and work through the first homework. Very cool! I have three teenage kids and they are literally blown away that a computer can predict dogs vs. cats with such high accuracy!
