The three times I've had those issue it has been a brick and mortar stores fault.
And the bank fixed the charges with less than 10 min of my time wasted.

My dad pays 10-30% more for most stuff he buys because he's stubborn and old.

And everyone thinks they wasted money in their youth, everyone. No matter what you spent your money on

She just uses the computers for Facebook and working with photos but until she actually decides to invest time in learning Adobe programs I will keep her placated with whatever new iPad/iPhone is out. She gets good mileage out of those. She will turn my computer on pretty much only if she feels like listening to Internet radio through the tv sound system. Other than that I think she is scared of my computers.

She thinks the case labs cases are from the 1980's.

I am 36, so is my waist measurement.

Sounds like I lucked out with my wifey.

Growing up it was my father buying parts for my brother and me to upgrade the computers. 386 to 486 expansion, 8MB DIMMs, 3DFX VooDoo cards ... I remember when PII dropped he spent >4K on Dell's top model with every option. Looking back, I'm curious what my mother thought of this biggrin.gif

As a freshman in high school after I got my first check for some pen testing my first purchase was a 16MB DIMM so I could do a graphical install of SuSE Linux on my P133. Once things picked up a bit the second purchase was three 128MB DIMMs, which gave me a god-like 384MB RAM in my fancy Win98SE box. I don't recall any objections - I kept my money in cash hidden with my fireworks and never discussed money with my parents. My pops didn't mind driving me to compUSA either smile.gif

Of course then girls became priority until college. Summer before college, getting ready to move from rural dialup (26k) to college campus pipes, was when I got my first ATI card(!). And of course my roommate turned out to be an overclocking enthusiast with one of those oddball AMD chips. We built a rig together once the AMD dual cores became available and oh how we lit the dorms up with Day of Defeat, MG42 on the big sound system always brought the girls from the coed floors up and down stairs knocking (banging on the door screaming murder biggrin.gif )

But yeah, after college when I wasnt making a lot of money I always softened the dollar amount I told I was spending on PC and laptop upgrades. I was always somehow selling the old stuff for the same price as the new parts! And don't look in the closet, because there's a whoooole lot of cardboard biggrin.gif

Now of course things are different in that, total build cost of my rig in progress is pretty irrelevant to my finances thanks to a lot of luck and a bit of hard work. But that doesn't mean I feel comfortable telling Everyone about how much that is smile.gif My new fiance (of less than 24 hours!) is aware of the costs and still encourages me to, if I'm going to spend the money, buy what I really want and what's going to leave me with no regrets. I wouldn't have bought a Case Labs and Aquaero if it wasn't for her encouragement

Congrats on getting engaged!! Did that about 2 years ago myself, and we have our first kid coming in October. I know the budget will have to shift to provide for the little one, but my wife was also the one who encouraged me to get a custom waterloop last year, and a CaseLabs this year. We both have our hobbies for what we enjoy, and we are both cool with spending money to enjoy life (if we have the funds of course).

As far as my closet, empty cardboard boxes, and lots of 'em. My wife made me throw a bunch of them away last weekend, but I guess it's fine since I didn't have some of the stuff anymore anyway. I buy quality parts and have generally sold them to upgrade to new quality parts for different sockets, or whatever (CPUs, GPUs, SSDs, RAM, etc...).

Again congrats on the engagement!

To this day my dad buys everything in stores and won't buy anything online.

Been there done that. It's a sucky position to be in. One that you can't do much about, until you've got your own credit card. Ask a friend's parent, if you need it now, or buy a pre-paid VISA/MC debit card and order it that way. I've been hit multiple times with someone else using fraudulent charges, and it sucks, but the bank has always been good to get me my money back (even if they do take their sweet time to get around to it).

The way I ways have done it is I only use the money I make on overtime or side jobs that I wouldn't have done normally. Meaning if I want a new part or whatever I'll take a side job or take a bunch of ot as so it doesn't touch the money I normally make which is dedicated to getting a house, bills and simply making my kid and soon to be fiancé happy

Nice build, I bet those cards run nice and cool with the triple fan and intakes right on them. I had 980 KPE in same set up as you and they ran great.

Guys!!!! My mom is letting me get the S5, and she's even contributing $100 to it! If I order the case in gunmetal tomorrow at 9pm, will it still count as "before the end of the month of June"?

There's 30 days in June. Tomorrows the 28th. Can guarantee it. I ordered my SMA8 with a gunmetal exterior and black interior + flexbays on the 24th. Can't wait for it to arrive.

I know tomorrow is still June lol, I just thought that because It is so close to the end of the month, they might not accept it.
