Haha, I have no money either and I'm 18. Don't worry about it

I did get 10 though today for selling a printer I got for free, and I'm planning on getting 30 for an animation job I'm doing for my dads site

You just need to find little jobs. Thats where the money really comes from!

if u leave your computer at that temperature u risk damaging it, from the sounds of it its a pretty old computer so i think the thermal paste has worn out or somethin, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007 buy that, take the heatsink off and get all the old thermal paste off with some rubbing alcohol, then when its nice and clean put a small blob of thermal paste in the middle of the cpu and spread it around with ur finger so u get a nice even thin layer on the cpu, put the heatsink back on along with that fan u bought and u will see much lower temps all for $6, i dont know about u but i would spend $6 to save my comp

I wouldn't use your finger. The last time I did that with thermal compound, I had to wash for about 10 minutes to get all of it off...
