Find a way of earning money, you can't just demand stuff from your parents and expect them to give it to you.

 

My first "PC" was a third hand 2002 iMac G3:

And through that I learnt a little bit of photoshop and offered background (back in the day) for Youtube for like £5 a piece, they were shit but I earnt enough for a laptop.

 

Moral of the story, save up and buy your own stuff or at least try and got 50/50 with them and say you need it for school if you're willing to lie.

a gamimg pc is quite a good investment, you wil learn useful things while building it and you wil most likely have it for a long time if you take good care of it.

You're 13. If your parents say no, your only other option is to put money aside until you can afford to buy it for yourself.

Sounds like her processor is overheating. Have you tried turning her on and off again?

First off dont call it a gaming PC second off find other reasons to have it besides gaming. Tell them if they get it for you you will go to linda.com (offer code linus) and learn a new skill like coding or Auto cad Plus you can use it to do school work and take it with you to college give them a reason that you need to spend a bunch of money on a system for you.

Okay then if you have all the money, how will this Gaming PC benefit you in any way?

Legally she has control of all of his money until he is 18.

 

 

But anyway, come up with some scheme on how it will advance your knowledge within editing and graphics generation, say that it will help you with school homework and revision, blargh blargh. Just include school.

Show her how much you love gaming and why. Than it won't look so bad of an investment.

Maybe also put up some good points why it aint just for gaming and that it will last you along time.

Also! If she still says no ask her what else she expects you to spend it on, then argue how you can buy that another time.

At the age of 13 parents say what you can and cant do with your money sadly... Hey, my mum still gets pissed at me when I spend my money from working in hosting. Parents dont understand everything that a computer does, and they didn't want me to get one but if I didn't I wouldn't be where I am now. Just come up with something good, and you might convince them.

If money is hard to come by, getting a PC for gaming shouldn't be a priority.

 

Can you think of something else that you need more? Get that first.

 

Yes I love playing games and system building. But I have a job to support my hobby. I'm as entitled to flip a person off as much as he/she can say no to me.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
