ok so how do I talk the family into getting upgrades... I highly doubt they're going to be okay with me custom building a pc because they found the price they paid for this pc when it was brand new to be extraordinary. The other day they were saying it cost close to an excess of 2 grand when in reality it did not. It cost around 1 grand. And now it cost around 500 dollars. I did not tell them that because I did not want to be rude. But they seem to think because they paid such an inflated price that it will super excel at everything it was made for. Which it does not has never. I tried to talk them into upgrades about half a year ago and I was quickly thrown an array of comments with the general idea of "ingrate". YET AGAIN I was and am pretty young. I only have about 1 grand to 800 dollars saved up. I am a senior. They also throw the argument that if it isn't good why did I not buy it myself. You get the pattern here? If I were ever allowed to get upgrades I had planned on getting a new power supply, a 670, and a i5. And if I needed which I probably would a new MOBO. That would total out to around 350-500 dollars. They again jump the gun and assume the upgrades im looking for would cost an excess of another 1000 dollars.
