Not sure if selling mine anymore or not, I'm planning on getting my hip replacement done in the near future then getting myself into money (job wise lol) so I'll just buy parts etc as I like, I have high hopes for Zen so if I've got the cash I'll just get one asap.
Do as I do save back $10-$25 a paycheck or every night you come home put your change into a water cooler bottle painted black and don't mess with it and do this for a year or so and in a years time it will amaze you how much it adds up to for a upgrade budget. I did the change thing for 1yr I had $1,184 that is enough to do a pretty good upgrade lol if you save for 2yrs well you can build a whole new rig every 2yrs with change method and if do the $10 or so a paycheck and the change thing well can do a full rig build every yr and not be hurting yourself.
The trick is to do change method and never look at it or try to count it let it set and forget about it and as for the $10-$25 a paycheck method simply make a tin can savings bank and hot glue or JB weld lid on it with a hole just big enough to put the bills in and leave it alone.
I know not everyone has a enviroment they can trust others in house around like kids and well often the wife lol wives will always say the money could go to better use than a computer when doing in such small amounts like this they often wont fight you but got to be carefull they might dip into it before you lol.
doing the change method and the $10-$25 per paycheck I currently have almost $4,000 for the zen upgrade mobo / CPU / ram / graphics card my case / power supply is all good I know what I have left because i just dipped into it had almost $5,000 I bought 3x new 144hz monitors 27inchers 1080p http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009909
to replace my aged 1080p monitors lol. I was waiting on 4k to get better and mature but couldnt wait any longer needed new monitors bad 1 of mine died after 5yrs or so and another the color is staring to discolor so it is on way out 1 out of 3 is still good but yeah it was past due. I want to also point out at this point we are talking over 2yrs of saving to get to this point using previously mentioned method I have been standing by and waited since I finished my current rig.
I want to point out those monitors are the shiznit they are some of best monitors I have ever had and for the price a heck of a bargain 1ms response time and 144hz perfect gaming monitors.Edited by rickcooperjr - 8/27/16 at 4:43pm
