I spent $3,000+ on computer parts this weekend to build a data science/machine learning box. And I have some thoughts. 1/n
Also, in fairness, I haven't actually built the computer yet. But that's not what this thread is about. 3/n
I think that a lot of the low-level (i.e. what specific parts to buy) advice is pretty solid but some of the conceptual (e.g. how much RAM do you need, how powerful should your processor be) advice is missing the mark. 4/n
Google anything about "building a computer for machine learning" or "cpu for machine learning" or "memory for machine learning" and it will take you directly to a bunch of "hardware for deep learning" posts. (Note, those *were* my shout outs.) 5/n
