    Default How do u finance your gaming pc?

    Well let's see how people finance their own pc, its natural for us citizens to finance their own pc by themselves and most of the people with powerful hardware are either grown ups or teen agers with decent job. On the other hand saudi people finance their pc with their so called baper taka. Well what about bg members, also pls mention what u do like student or something else, and if u are a student, pls share ur grade or hons. semister.
    let's start with me.
    90% finance use to come from my parents , and rest other from me
    um a student looking for a decent universtiy.
    18 years old.
    don't have any kind of job.

    I don't work either so any money I save is still my parent's money really. Upgrades are cheap because you can always recycle your older hardware. Timing is key though. Biggest hurdle is the initial purchase, after that you can keep upgrading if you are a good saver.

    It depends on what you want though, lot of people stay happy with their initial purchase. I prefer to upgrade at least some components to protect resale value, like I always do it for my phone because it essentially costs me nothing thanks to contract pricing. This is not possible in BD because there's no guarantee about prices, super high mark ups, and of course, extremely stupid second-hand market including the one here in BG.

    Vaia Thanx for the head up. Basically the 10% Saving came mostly from my family. But u know, a shorter summarized version like ..% is from parents and ..% is from me would be beneficial to comprehend. And actually its not possible for young people like u and me to finance our own Pc so do not feel shy, we all buy stuff with our parents' money.

    I have never thought about it in percentages and have no idea where I would start lol. What made you think I was shy, that was an honest response. Its easier for me to save because I'm not interested in wasting money behind stuff normal young people crave.

    Student tuition, saved up money from tournaments and the rest from my parents. After I bought my initial PC, the rest came from selling old stuff and then buying new. Like for e.g I had 38k saved up from teaching and now it's only 6k after I bought a new processor/motherboard.

    I buy my PCs with the money I earn from my part-time freelancing jobs... but my first PC (Pentium 4) was financed by my elder brother .
    Quran 6:159 - there is no sunni, shia under Islam.

    NOTE: I'm leaving this forum.. do not quote, tag, mention or PM me... you won't get a response.

    First PC. 20% mine and baby sis' investment. And, yes. I'll be happy with my initial build quite some time.
    My probable next build: Qisan MagicForce 68 (Outemu switch) / Teamwolf Zhuque+ 87 TKL (Outemu) / Monoprice Select series full size (Outemu/Gateron) / Drevo Gramr 84 TKL (Outemu) • Logitech G102 Prodigy • Deepcool Dukase V3 / Thermaltake Versa U21 • Superlux HD 681 • Creative Sound Blaster E1 • LG 22MP68VQ • SteelSeries QcK • Generic executive chair • others TBA

    djrock please don't bother me. You are in my ignore list so I don't have to see literal poop.

    100% bought by my own money, a fact I'm proud of.

    I work part time for an American institution.

    My elder brother and mother paid for my PC last year. Before that I never had a great PC. Before that I had a PS2, saved up money for 2 years to buy it. It cost 16800 at the time of purchase, my first time buying something so expensive with my own money.
    Currently I am a student of A2. I have a very minor job checking O level English papers. And I work as a journalist so that gives me an additional sum of money depending on how many articles I publish. Other than that birthdays and eid are occasions where I can get money from my family.
    I used to smoke sporadically before, but I stopped it now and it saves me a surprising amount of money.
    I know that no future upgrades will be financed by my family, and I don't really want it from them either. Although my brother plays games when he is free, he is happy to play at any setting. So for maxing out games and such, it's all on me, and I won't even bother anyone else for upgrades.

    long story!


    first few machines was mostly financed by my father(just got an upgrade from my uncle). the time when I was in school(SSC 08) and college(HSC 10).

    then got myself kinda involved in politics, got some cha khawar money,
    after entering university of dhaka started teaching , got some money there!
    that time did some dhanda bazi(as frnds call it ) got some more money
    did some webpage related works got some money there!

    sad thing is, i had a very high upkeep so couldn't save much
    but with that money i managed to buy my current machine.

    then my brother generously gave me a GPU, RAM and HDD!

    that's what I'm using right now!

    First Pentium 3 PC was bought by my dad back in 2005, as a reward. Study stuff. About 1.5/2 years later, the whole PC got busted and I nagged enough to get a new Celeron setup after a few months. But Celeron wasn't cutting it. Used my results to get my parents to promise me a better PC in 2008/9. They didn't let me till 2010/11. The monitor is still from 2005's setup. Parents spent as much as 30k directly for my current PC. I bought the GPU with my saving, meaning parents' given money and scholarships. After 2010/11, I haven't asked my parents directly for money for PC yet. After that, the rest, sound card, headphone, iems, games, internet charges, router, HDDs etc. are financed by savings aka money getting from parents and a bit of scholarships. Last time I got money for something related to PC was money for modem as my sis had taken my modem. That was in 2011.

    Parents already spent about 100k behind my 3 rigs and I spent about 30/40k or more myself.
    I'm a 19 year old student without any kinda job. Looking to get into a good university. I'll probably get money for a new rig, ie a net/notebook from parents one last time after admission In Shaa Allah. Thats's it. That'll be the last time they financed my rigs. [except for the savings from money I'll still be getting from them monthly]
