So here's the story:
I had a computer picked out at newegg (parts). Incredible and priced @ a little under 1300. Then, I was like, I need a job (i'm gonna turn 16 next week btw). So I find myself a job, but my dad is like, don't take that job yet, let me make sure with the immigration to check that you can work. (We come from Brazil and our greencard is supposed to come out late this year). And guess what?! No, apparently if i get permission to work I have to start my own greencard process that costs a @&$! load. So there goes my year with a 2004 dell (512mb RAM, GeForce MX440).
