the bad part about it, is the only reason they didn't build it is because they didn't want to buy the operating system...
If I would have known that sooner you could have told your parents you can download windows 7 iso and use it for 30 days.
If they don't want to come out of pocket you would need to generate atleast 80.00 bucks during the next 30 days.
Either selling off somethings you don't need or finding some sort of work withik your neighborhood or city.
Show your parents this thread if you want, also tell them a compurer technician showed you this for reference.
If the computer is returnable by the store and you want to build it go ahead and do so.
However you will need to be responsible and learn to seek online technical help if you have build issues.
Toms hardware forums and tech-forms is good for support if you listen to them.
If they still say no enjoy the computer build up your own funds throughout the year and do it yourself.
Lesson learned, both parents and kids win in the long run.
A budget is how much money they have at their disposal, not how much the thing costs.
Yes you're correct, I however do not know how much money I will have at my disposal. I am building this for my grandma (she actually told me to add the peripherals and shit XD ) she said she would let me know after she has some surgery.
Mini-Tech: alright will look into it. I will get back to you when I am done looking over these parts XD
My Parents took the computer for themselves .-. and gave me their old one. My grandma is building one cause her laptop is GARBAGE she wants a new one, and I am over here for months on end. so that's why I was actually thinking of getting this.
I'm not really that backhanded. XD but the thing is, my grandma is going to have surgery, and she won't know how much she has until afterwards, and she said she isn't spending over 800$ simply because she can go out and for 600$ buy a computer from walmart. so I was thinking of getting this.
what a lot of people don't realize is that weed is actually just a plant and not a "bad" drug, your body has THC receptors and produces cannabinoids naturally. You cannot get addicted to it. there is nothing in it to make it addictive. people can get "addicted" to anything but it's not really addiction unless there are withdrawls. which there isn't any from not smoking weed. I personally smoke everyday for medical reasons, and if I didn't have it I wouldn't even be able to make it through the day without being intensely sick (because of my health issues) weed is the only thing that has helped me. I mean I can get not smoking it, but to act like it's some bad thing like meth is just ridiculous.
