13 Year Old needs a job doing with computers! Please help me out!

So I basically set up something I can build myself through Amazon, but thank you for all of the comments. Some were very helpful.

Please do not buy that prebuilt.

You could very easily build something much more powerful and much more balanced for much less.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

First of all that PC is bad for the money.If you are looking at that pc cause it looks cool,or cause your favorite streamer of youtuber usess it, dont buy it its not worth it.

Thinking that you will be cool in school because of that price tag is also wrong.

What kind of purpose is that PC for?

 

Gaming wise its a piece of shit for 2000.

To much ram for gaming(no benefit at that amount),to much storage,budget cpu and gpu inside.

Buying some brand cause you think is premium and it isnt is stupid.

Job wise,go mown lawns,clean cars at gas stations or something like that

This pc is better,and if you need you can buy another hard drive and 8 gb of ram more for cheap.(this was pc i found in 5 sec on amazon,there are even better ones for under 1000.)

8tb of hard drive and 2gb ssd is just to much for a gaming pc,maybe 10 years ago when people were downloading porn directly to their pc and created their own PornHub database then i would understand,otherwise no.

Just from a liability

2 grand for a 1650 super build? That is far from perfect. 

Most companies wont hire you at 13 or 14. You can't legally be hired for a job at 13.

https://www.oshaeducationcenter.com/articles/child-labor-laws/#:~:text=Federal law states that 14,7am or after 7pm respectively.

You're better off going out, mowing yards for neighbors, cleaning up after dogs, weeding gardens... Anything you can find for neighbors or family.

There is also some kind of legal liability as well. The kid could be working on something and someone's day gets lost. Wouldn't look great in a court having a 13 year old loosing data... 

But definitely 100% on the labor laws. 

@OP, I like your go getter attitude BTW. But for now, scrap together what you can and get some experience under your belt. 🙂 It goes a long way for when you get your first job.

So I think I found the perfect gaming pc for $2000 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08FRSQT1L/ref=ox_sc_act_title_7?smid=A3QR4864ATM9Z9&psc=1), but am not sure how to get the money. I am almost 14, so does anyone have any job recommendations? I can do light video editing, and some light HTML/CSS coding. But is there a way to make money remotely for a salary for me who is a 13 (almost 14) year old male? I will take any recommendations into mind! Thank You so much!

myboy, i have never had a 2000 dollar pc in my life. Gaming on a potato is a rite of passage for the essential gamer. Work your way up the ranks, start with a potato, then buy a 650 dollar machine, then, when you ascend to the ranks of godhood then my friend get yourself a nice 2000 dollar pc that runs games nice and easy.

Ask one of your teachers to help you make a resume, it should only be one page. Go online and apply to every local job posting you can find on google. Print off 10 at a time and spend half an hour or an hour after school going to every fast food place, restaurant, grocery store, retail chain etc. Ask somebody if you can speak to a manager and that you are looking to leave a resume. it should take maybe a minute or two, most stores just have a stack of resumes sitting in the manager's office. Grocery stores and big chain stores usually want you to apply online, but if you can always try to go in person at least. I have gotten fast food jobs from just being there in person to hand out a resume directly to the manager and them hiring me on the spot. Make sure you wear a belt and a button up shirt, but not a tie, that's weird.

get a summer holiday job in china -> have respect for the labour that goes into electronics -> vote for Trump -> oops! -> go into sales ->realize that hardware sales is the worst form of sales compared to everything else on the open market -> get a job delivering furniture -> realize that you need to invest to make money -> buy your own truck on tick -> spend 10 years paying off debt -> retire in the mountains with no electricity required.

Gaming on a potato? Already have lol. A potato would have been better. This was the first thing I ever gamed on:

I skipped step 2.

I went straight from a potato to midrange.

Cool tech tip inside:

If you enjoy tech try and scrounge for parts.

 

We have bulk rubbish weeks where hard rubbish is left out for collection.

 

Our tip won't let you take electrical, (safety and liability issues) but your local might sell or give you some old gear.

 

Local freecycle/pay it forward groups can have people giving things away or selling very cheap.

 

Buy and sell sites, computer forums...

 

You'll see people doing a clear out really cheap.

 

My current build was previously an old i3 rig with a 7750 from a friend, then upped to a 1050ti and I have now upgraded to a decent budget build.

 

If you start ratting get a potato going, upgrade it and sell things along the way. I've made a few hundred from old CPUs pulled from machines getting binned.
