This bot helps us buy Nvidia Founders Edition GPUs as soon as they become available.

Note: This project is no longer being actively maintained. Nvidia stopped selling Founders Edition cards through their own store and transitioned to exclusively selling via 3rd-party retailers. To buy from those 3rd-party retailers, you can check out other projects like streetmerchant or fairgame.

Features

  • Continuously monitor the availability of target GPU on www.nvidia.com
  • Automatically checkout item using PayPal or as guest (credit card)
  • Automatically submit the order for credit card payment
  • Support for multiple locales (as defined in
    config/customer.json
    )
  • Support for multiple GPUs (as defined in
    data/gpus.json
    )

    • brew install pipenv
  4. Navigate to project directory using
    • cd nvidia-sniper
  5. Install project dependencies using
    • pipenv install

Windows

  1. Check if you already have a Python 3.8 installation by opening Windows PowerShell and executing
    python --version
    • If you see
      Python 3.8.0
      or higher, skip to step 4, otherwise continue to step 2
  2. Install the latest Python 3.8 for Windows
    • Click
      Add Path
      at the bottom of the first installation page.
  3. Install the latest version of Firefox
  4. Exit all PowerShell windows, then open a new PowerShell and install Pipenv using
    • pip install pipenv
  5. Navigate to project directory
    • If you downloaded (using git clone, or ZIP and extract) the project to
      C:\Users\user\Documents\nvidia-sniper
      , then use the following command:
      cd C:\Users\user\Documents\nvidia-sniper
  6. Install project dependencies using
    • pipenv install
  7. Install curses for Windows using

    • pipenv install windows-curses
      If step 6 results in
      pipenv : The term 'pipenv' is not recognized
    • Setup a virtual environment using
      • python -m venv .venv
    • Ensure you have the latest Python version using
      • python -m venv --upgrade .venv
    • Activate the virtual environment using
      • .venv/Scripts/activate
    • Install
      pipenv
      again using
      • pip install pipenv
    • Install project dependencies using

  4. A new window called Edit environment variable will pop up, ensure C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38\Scripts and C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38 exists in this list, where <username> is your username in Windows

  5. If these paths are not in the list, add them using the New button

  6. Remove all other PATHs which contain anything to do with Python, Pip, or Idle by clicking them, then clicking the Delete button

  7. Click OK to close the Edit environment variable window

  8. Click OK to close the Environment Variables window

  9. Click OK to close the System Properties window

CAPTCHA

This bot is equipped with the ability to resolve simple reCAPTCHA on its own without the use of a third party reCAPTCHA solver. As long as you follow the recommendation in the usage section below, it is extremely likely that the bot will succesfully complete the full auto-checkout process. With that said, there is a very small possibility that you will be presented with a more advanced reCAPTCHA requiring solving image tasks that the bot cannot handle natively. If you would like to have a backup in place for that possibility, you have that option by following the steps below.

  1. Download the ReCaptcha Solver extension using the link https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3423472/recaptcha_solver-5.7-fx.xpi. If you open this link in Firefox, it will automatically attempt to add the extension to your browser. That's not what we want. Right click the link and select "Save link as" to download the *.xpi file or try opening the link in a browser other than Firefox.
  2. Put the *.xpi file inside the root of the

    nvidia-sniper
    directory.

    folder

  3. Create an account using one of ReCaptcha Solver's supported APIs, ex. 2captcha. Deposit money into your account. A few :dollar: should be enough.

  4. Start the bot as per the instructions in the Usage section. After you go through the bot's selection process, you should see the ReCaptcha Solver extension in the browser.

  5. Copy your API key from the provider of your choice. Add this key to the extension. Also, enable the checkboxes as shown below.

Updating

To update

nvidia-sniper
use,
git pull
or download a fresh
.zip
archive from GitHub.

Make sure to back up the

customer.json
in advance as it might get replaced in the process.

Usage

To use the bot, fill out

config/customer.json
and run the script.
cd nvidia-sniper
pipenv run python -m sniper

It is highly recommended that you use Firefox as your default browser and use it to log into Google services such as YouTube or Gmail. This dramatically reduces the possibility of reCAPTCHA requiring you to pass an image challenge during the bot's operation, thus enabling a fully automatic checkout without the need for manual intervention.

Configuration

In the

config
folder a
customer.json
file and
notifications.json
file are used to configure the data used to auto fill the forms and to configure the bots notifications. To get started, copy and rename the two template files and customize the fields to your liking.

notifications.json

The bot can send multiple push notifications, including a screenshot attachment along the checkout process. See https://github.com/caronc/apprise#supported-notifications for more information. Add additional entries to the

services
dictionary in the
notifications.json
file for multiple providers. For each notification, a custom
message
can be set. Additionally, the
screenshot
attachment can be toggled per provider.

A couple of example URLs for different notification services: -

pover://[email protected]
: Pushover -
tgram://bottoken/ChatID
: Telegram -
discord://webhook_id/webhook_token
: Discord

customer.json

customer.json
