    Default How do I kill my pc?

    Hey guys!
    So as you all might know, I'm getting a pc soon. Though I'm like 20 short, and even if I would have the money, my parents would be like: "if you buy it now, you'll be all out of money, so you have to wait untill you have some more!".
    This leaves me with 2 choices.
    1. Obey my parents and wait (for a (few) more month(s)).
    2. Kill my old workhorse which had been serving me for more than 9 years.
    So I'm leaning towards the second option, because look at my specs.
    If that thing doesn't need replacement then I'm the king of England.
    So, what's the best way to kill this thing and make it look like a natural death?
    Cheers!

    And plug out the CPU fan too? Just for the sake of it?

    Wait until you have the cash to build or buy a system you can be proud of, something that can handle everything you need it to, and look great at the same time.

    Agreed with what everyone else has said, as a parent myself....we dont just tell our kids these thing to hear ourselves talk, we do it to help them learn how to be responsible with money and other things so when they get older they can build themselves a $5000+ rig cause a parent taught you well!

    As someone who does his own budget. Yes, save until you have your budget plus ten percent, then build for ten percent under budget. Plenty of flex and money left over. THere are always unforseen costs. I had to buy new sata cables and have them shipped at a stupid price because red doesn't fit my theme.
