my first reaction would be how do you afford to have that rig at that age lol i can only just afford it now and we got similar specs

and then if it broke i would be working towards fixing it, however annoyed i get with it, i always keep going back to things to fix them

We've all been there. Unfortunately, it's the best way to learn. If everything went right 100% of the time, none of us would know anything .

My very first PC was a prebuilt bought from a store. I had it for about a year and wanted to upgrade it. I upgraded as much as I could, HD, video, etc. but I reached a point where I couldn't upgrade anymore. I wanted to build my own, but my parents didn't think I could do it. So, I broke my old machine by shutting it off halfway through a BIOS upgrade. The 'rents had no choice but to let me try to build one. I had the cash, but didn't have a credit card so had to use their card to order. The rest is history.

mate i worked out my guts at the start if the year i was upgrading from a pentium D which was at 3ghz but took 13 minutes to log into my account. but when i built my own rig it really did show me how much technology has moved forward. it literally shat on the other pc 100000000000 times over, does anyone want a sliverstone raven? huge case it will make you feel like a man i want the bitfenix venom thingy.

how ironic hmmmblah thats exactly what I did word for word! the only reason why mum said i could build one is because my cousin used to own a pc store but now he works for the government. like he manages the towns network and everything. mind you he lives in the country, he checked my rig out aswell and he said it was fine.

Well im 17, so I guess that is pretty young on this forum.

My build has gone fine. I got back from my holiday in America and had some spare money in my bank.

So i thought i should put it to use and use it for something i've always wanted to do.

Bought all the parts that I looked for, for a few months. Then put it all together with little problems.

Was fun and I look forward to upgrading my build and perhaps doing other builds when I have an actual job
