So I have searched, and searched, and SEARCHED for any sorts of jobs which i can work at, i even suggested some things to a 14 year old on the forums a month or so back regarding this very same problem; yet i am completely stumped and frustrated on how i should go about legitimately earning the funds for my CPU, GPU, and RAM.
Now, selling my old console products has been an option, but I would only consider selling my xbox 360, the xbox One i've spent too much on before my PC obsession to get rid of now (like 300 in games srs why did i do that). I have some spare phones i can put in that stupid phone recycling box at the mall, a menagerie of useless accessories which might not even have all of the parts, but i dont think even if i sold everything i had i could scrape up even $200...
Now i might end up being downstream without a paddle on this one, because of every conceivable establishment near me, none of them are hiring, let alone at my age. So my conundrum is that i have a half built desktop sitting on my desk with the power supply and storage in it, but a motherboard in need of parts worthy for 60fps at 1080p. I can't babysit, clean, or do tutoring (i don't have transportation if its a job like that) and i dont even have a lawnmower to cut lawns, which would be totally possible if i had a lawnmower.
The reason I'm crying for help on this forum is because I am at the end of my rope, i should have just saved for a prebuilt now with all of the price increases going on. Sitting on my crappy $200 HP laptop which my mom wont let me sell and whining about this probably wont do me any good, but if there is anybody out there who knows a way I could solve this mess, I need your advice. I love the gaming community, console and PC equally, and I have been a gamer since 3. With the way the tech industry is constantly changing, i currently regret getting so rooted in the console world, and my lack of interest in the PC realm until almost 8 months ago. I just want to have a machine capable of doing good in games and work, and I am almost there, i just need a push in the right direction to finish it off.
Sorry, i was rambling, wasn't i? If you know a way i can get a 1060 or 580, a Ryzen 1600x, and 16 gigs of DDR4, i would be eternally grateful.
