Charge more for cleaning than for overclocking?

I think people would pay $50 for good overclocking. Repair cost should be specific to the type of repair needed. Like software repair would be good at $30, but if hardware is messed up, a lot more diagnostic work is involved. We could charge a flat diagnostic fee.

Me too. I'm always finding myself charging way too little for a lot of stuff.

Just remember that $100 AU Is $60 US,And Prices here in australia are higher for PC Parts.

That's ridiculous. I think they key to our business here will be to not get greedy. 10% of the price of a build is enough I think. Then we can do $20 to set-up networks, $30 repair, $30 cleaning (takes a lot of work, probably one of the most underrated services), and like $25 for the overclocking.
You may just want to charge an hourly rate,for example i charge $60 an hour ($30 an hour for friends).

So you went over her budget and that's not including your payment?

I can easily go under. That's a rough sketch. I don't know exactly what she needs yet so I over did everything for now.
