I Started with building pc's when i was 11,the only way i got parts was to scavenger for them (Council cleanup,Dump) or if friends and realtives gave me there old computers,i was using Pentium 1's and 2's and maybe 3's if i was lucky,Using windows 98 because it was the only OS Disc i had,and this was only in 03'.

So your lucky if your using brand new parts.....

best way to do this is work for your parts. don't ask for handouts, start by learning how to clean up OS or install OS and charge your customers for it. obtain the talents required to EARN your parts. that's the problem with kids nowadays, they want handouts. do something to earn a board and maybe it will come to you.

couldn't have said it any better. working for your parts is what you need to do, life isn't free...and nothing will be handed over to you either, so you need to find some way to work for your parents. do chores around the house, help your neighbors for a couple bulks, there's ways to get the money to buy ur mobo.

Don't ask for donations kid, that's left for the people living in the street. Do it the hard way. Be strong, earn your money, go out and clean a garden or something.

The first computer I had ran windows 3.1... It came from a skip. Then, I bought a computer from a car boot sale - ran 95. Then, my brother and I built a computer, running Windows 2000, Athlon 1700+ and 512MB ram. Then, I asked for a computer for christmas.. Which I got, and then upgraded. Then, My brother gave me his computer... So I gave My computer to my dad, and had his computer... And here I am now!
