    Default New PC Almost Done

    Needs RAM, only have so much $$ every week that I can blow on this , luckily I was off on vacation and was able to get to Micro Center by 9:00am, securing a processor & motherboard for $440. They had 10 of the new i5 processors left and I got the last model of that motherboard.

    I got a ways to go, the video card alone cost $500., 2 512gb SSD's will be around $500. RAM will be $200. Only need the RAM though to get it running, I'll order that Fri, then I can finally not have to look at this ity-bitty phone screen, going blind!!!

    So you and the wife can make 160 grand for years and not smart enough to save a dime?

    Let's start a revolution by axing our personal debt

    Then you hit a "tough" patch for a few years where you "only" make 86,000. and bankruptcy was, in your words, "inevitable" Do you even have a clue how many on this board get by on half or less of that?

    Now you're dropping 1200 bucks on a damn computer? Did your bankruptcy judge approve that?

    Maybe, just maybe, some of the creditors you screwed with your bankruptcy would have liked to
    shared in that.

    You've insulted the people on this board, who are really struggling to get by on far less, and are paying their bills.

    Don't even bother to make excuses, just change your handle from kickass to dumbass.

    A little judgemental are we? My wife drives a Mercedes too, we're total dicks, Ha!!! Lighten up there grandpa, I had this $$ set aside for months from doing side jobs, pc isn't done anyways, I can't even power it up because I have no RAM installed. I estimate 5-6 more weeks of extra OT before it will be completed. Just so you know we have $88xx. coming our way via the courts from some slimeball creditors. We filed bk to get these slimey people off our backs. Furthermore isn't your whining a little off topic Mr. Supermod?

    Well, a friend owed me $$ for a pc build I did last year, so he gave me the $$ I needed for RAM, it's running now. This thing is fast, stays cool thanks to the H2O cooling, still need a video card and a couple of ssd's, then it'll be complete!

    Next big purchase, $490.00 but prices are dropping.

    and these, 512gb each, $425.+, might take me awhile though.

    Well have your son build you a top of the line budget pc, don't buy one of them all-in-one headaches, if your son knows a thing or two he could have it done pretty cheap

    I built several PC's Back in the day but why would I want one today. The PC is dead and this PC is only useful for Gaming, but why when there's the likes of Xbox around. Programers are not focusing on the Dead PC Market.
