  1. 100% yes If Linux gaming comes to a point where I can run most of my games native with no performance loss, that’s when I switch. Having an open source OS with security, privacy, and user customization in mind is like heaven for me
  2. This was discussed in another thread of mine, but the question asked was different, anyways... My friend and I want to start a PC build service but we don't really know where to start. He and I are both 16 years old if that helps, also living in the US. We have a company name and a basic idea of what to do, but we don't really know where to start. I am personally taking charge of the legal stuff like registering as a cooperation, with my moms help. She and I have talked about this, and she has started her own practice so she knows what I have to do and she can help
  3. I've been thinking about this all day, I haven't talked to him about it because it's late right now but tomorrow thats first on my list of things to do. I 100% agree, I shouldn't be shunned away from what I want to do, and be stuck only doing legal and admin stuff... What I'll do tomorrow is list all of the main responsibilities on a doc or something send it to him, I'll also make it known that I want to build pc's as well. I don't really enjoy installing windows on a bunch of machines and waiting for benchmarks to finish.... That's okay, but I want to build computers a
  4. These are also really good options that are much more sustainable than just pc building alone. I have no idea how to migrate versions or do data backups for businesses, but that's absolutely somethin I want to learn. Why not put my hardware knowledge and love for computers to good use and help businesses Might not be something I offer right away because I am more comfortable with repair and pc building, but as I do research and get comfortable definitely something I'm willing to do. But first things first... I need to take this slow and get all of the legal stuff sorted
  5. This is more viable, easier to keep profit and I won't have to worry as much about expenses and material cost. Especially right now when everything pc related is insanely overpriced.
  6. I've been thinking about this more and more, this seems like a much more viable option that I can do because there is no material cost like you said. That is a lot easier to maintain and keep a profit. I'll ask my friend about this but this is something that I'm willing to do.
  7. This helps a bunch, I just looked at incfile and seems like a great place to start. I'll look at a few other similar solutions but I think an LLC is right for my friend and I. Over the coming days I'll do some more in depth research and then ask for help from my mom. My mom has started her own practice so she knows what to do, and is ready to help. Expense tracking and shipping were two of my biggest concerns. I'll look at Square and some other business management platforms and see what's best for me. I don't have to just do PC building either, repairs are something I'm open to
  8. I can definitely feel that I'm rushing, I want to start but I need to take it way slower than I am now... This isn't a necessary thing for me, just something I'd like to do... so I can take it much slower I talked to my mom a bit ago and she says she is willing to help me out with all of the legal stuff, but she will make me research and do what I can myself. That helps a lot and gives me a good place to start.
  9. Honestly at this rate I don't know what to do anymore with this whole thing. I'm 16 so that makes all of this so much harder. If I really want to do this I'm going to have to apply to be an actual business to the government, which isn't that bad. It will actually allow us to have a website and sell pc's and make that process easier. But it's something that if I do I'll be fully committed to doing something that is seemingly slipping farther and farther out of my reach. I've been at the drawing board for weeks now, my friend and I have been trying to figure our everything and w
  10. This makes a lot of sense, as a small builder we simply won't have the resources to help with every little thing, but if people reach out in their warranty period we will absolutely help them, but don't expect much after that period as we have minimal resources to have long term support.
  11. I don't mind people coming back with questions or problems for a bit, but I don't want them coming back and blaming us a few months after the purchase because that isn't our problem any more A few weeks I can accept, I can do a 1 month grace period with full refunds acceptable, and another 2 weeks of support after, that sounds okay
  12. I dont want the warranty to be too long because I don't want people coming back to us after like 2 years .__. I'll gove them the warranty cards and info for every part so if something goes wrong with a part itself, they can go to the manufacturer But I was thinking a few months of support, maybe 3-6 months, they return the system and we issue a full refund, no questions asked :3
  13. Thats what I heard about FurMark, but I thought that was fixed... I guess not I'll do the burn in test for now :3
  14. Agreed, I think just testing all the components on the mobo is faster and easier than a test bench Makes stuff more simple
