Default oh no.....a......JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!

heres the problem, i've had so much fun messing with/ learning about computer hardware that i've left off messing around with any programming i would usually do, and that doesn't happen much. i wanted to make video games but i lose interest in programs that are more in depth than a simple PONG remake. i'm trying to find a job in computer hardware but i'm not sure if engineer is the right direction(i like computers but obsessing about diodes and busses, etc. doesn't seem interesting). honestly i'd like to put together computers my entire life but i doubt someone would pay me to do that(well, pay me more than minimum wage anyway). is there a job out there that pays well to, say, OC many computers all day everyday?

of course i paid attention(in my computer classes anyway) but i'm not in college yet so what would the degree path be? also does this require me to learn programming languages also? (<= not a problem at all, just want to know so i can start now)

no problem. unforutanely i've almost decided that computer hardware engineering seems to be the best path as with that degree i can get the other types of jobs i want, and designing hardware would not be the worst thng in the world

anyone else?
