The Perils Of Being 14 And Addicted To Technology

Well, it ain't easy. Being 14 and in love with technology. The general rule is that most good electronics = lots of $$. As my only source of income is from mowing lawns @ ~$20 ea, it takes a while for me to save up for anything decent. Take for example my iPod (8GB 5th gen Nano) - ~$170. Took me however many months to save up for.

At the moment, I am working on upgrading our old desktop computer from a Sempron 2400+ based to a Dual Core Pentium based system. (Hopefully this'll last a good 3 or so years before it needs and upgrade ). I already have the CPU, PSU, HDD, ODD, case and wireless NIC. So basically all I need is a Motherboard and some RAM. I was looking at this: motherboard and RAM. But, I've hit a snag. The motherboard is out of stock until next month. So basically tomorrow I will have everything that I need for the computer (getting a HSF for it tomorrow), I will have to wait at least ~11 days until I can get it going

Not only is this time barrier crap, I still have to pay my parents off for the lot of it, while at the same time one of my mates is pressuring me to get into Warhammer 40K. So if you haven't worked it out yet, financially I am screwed. I seriously need a job...
