Default Re: New Processor and MOBO?

Its their money. Alvino, I have a job, and make 7.50 and hour... I work hard for my spending money. My parents only buy what they feel is "logical" in their own eyes. Meaning when I wanted my 30" LCD TV for my CPU Monitor (which got destoryed int he flood as well) I had to save for 2 years for it!

No. I won't spend it. I have approximately $10,000 in the bank but that's for my university. Yeah the way you spend money is your choice. I just think it is unwise.

Your kidding right Alvino?? I live near Indianapolis, basically northern Indy. We got 14" of rain!! I live on the banks on a large lake, with several feeding streams and tributaries. We have like 32,000$ flood gates, but the generator didn't trigger when the water broke through our sea wall. It just rushed through; normally the flodd gates close in under 10 secs, since they are pneumatic. However, the water came in, and had enough force to break our downstairs windows and door down, it was NOT pretty. My room is on that level, as well as our home theater. Everything was ruined! All my electronics and junk was destroyed, and well as all my books, etc! It is terrible!

I'm really sorry to hear that, AMD Zen. I hope things were insured well. But some things can't be replaced.
