It might be able to run minecraft on lowest settings if you overclock the front I/O kek

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How many hours of sleep do you get?"

  • 17 months ago
  • 2 points

For people from ages 13-19 the recommended amount of sleep is 9-10 hours, which (in my case) is not practical, i log around 6-7 hours of sleep, I wake up at 5:30 though, and feel like crap everyday. it's more about when you wake up than it is about your total hours slept, however loss of sleep becomes apparent and blatantly terrible at the <4 hour level, so get at least 5 if you want to survive the next day. I also end up sleeping like an hour in school too.

The ideas you presented would be challenging since my parents are reluctant to do anything for me in this field, but thank you for your suggestions and I will try my best to think of a solution like you said!

They might trust me with that because the staff knows i'm good with computers and i have helped them on numerous occasions because they don't even have an IT Staff person (Private school) however, they might not consider it because they are so tightly budgeted and they can't even hire a teacher for my math class so i'm stuck with substitutes if they even show up.

walmarts near me hire at minimum 16, and when i say i don't have money for a computer, i mean i dont have money at all, my parents certainly wont buy me a lawnmower when my stepdad can just bring his from work, but i cant use that one for anything because it doesnt belong to my family

I think that your build is very good for low end gaming, it should suit you fine until gpu prices regulate, when they do, i recommend adding another 8 gigabytes of RAM and getting yourself a 1060 for 1080p 60fps gaming. If you're willing to spend a penny more i would highly recommend you bump the HDD up to a WD Blue, i know that's another 10-20 dollars, but for the higher RPM and the reliability of WD hard drives makes it worth it, HDDs are hard to use when it comes to loading time optimization, so any 7200 RPM would be much better, trust me on that.

I understand all of this, and i suggested tunnel bear to him. While i sympathize and agree with his concerns (but not to the same degree) but what frustrates me is that he doesnt take suggestions from me because "I'm already in the palm of their hands" when the opposite is true. I use the platform. but i've found ways to make sure I'm using it, not it using me. But nonetheless, the issue i am presenting, is how do i convey my competence with this subject to my stepfather, or at least deceive him to believe there is no issue with the way we operate on the level we operate. None of us in my family are using the internet in a way which is playing into the hands of the government. Thank you for dedicating your time to my forum post, and i appreciate you taking the time to respond!

He wants to pay for a service called "Virtual Shield" and have everyone install it, but i'm not going to, and i dont think that virtual shield is a vpn anyway, but i've brought it up and he thinks its a waste of money even though he spends 200$ on a water filter.

if you live in the US most states allow you to work at places like walmart and such to do grocery bagging or other small tasks, at 14 or 15 (like me) Hour limitations are strict, 3 hours max on a school day, and 18 hours max on a school week, but still, you'd have the money to buy a full system in a month and a half with that schedule. Working during the summer has more opportunities and less strict hour limitations, but have fun trying to find a job, i've searched far and wide and come up with nil. The only way you can truly know whether a place will hire you is if you walk in and speak with a manager. Best of luck!

spend less on the case and go for the 500gb variant of the mx300 ssd, which is only 15$ more expensive, so might as well, also you could buy a hella long ethernet cable for cheaper than getting a wifi card

i don't know whether you are planning on putting at least a 1080 in there later on but.... to have spent so much money on all of the other parts and skimp on the GPU isnt the best budgeting you could have done... good otherwise though.

They're literally the worst provider on the customer service end, i mean, there's nothing wrong with their WiFi except for the fact that it's moderately overpriced. But it's impossible to get them to help you with stuff. 23+ hours logged on phone to REMOVE A PHONE LINE. idk, it's frustrating to deal with them and it would be a million times better if we didnt have to get WiFi from them

Any RAM with 2666-3200 Mhz speed and 24-32 GB looks good if you dont mind spending a little - but from the looks of your build you don't.
