That’s what my parents would give me. I would also put my money on it, just not too much. In other words, my parents will pay a part of it, and I will pay the other.
By “toaster”, I meant a cheap PC. The reason why I used such a word was because I literally wanted to build a case in shape of a toaster, but I would leave such a task to my father and brother since they are more “handyman-like” than I am. Thus, I decided not to build such a case and just use the word ‘toaster’ as a joke with a financial meaning.
Also, I don’t intend to get a laptop because it’s really difficult to upgrade. Not that it’s impossible, but it’s just difficult. A desktop gives me more freedom for building and upgrading.
PC Partpicker does exactly just that. It can actually give a price alert, but I don’t want to wait for too long because of the price increasing issue.
I forgot to mention my game list on Steam.
Most of my games are either “old” or more or less recent. Black Ops 3 is one of the most recent games I own, but the last time I played, many people were complaining about its performance. I had to lower the resolution and settings, which made it more comfortable with some graphical glitches (e.g. someone’s head disappears lol).
The main reason I want to go for my ‘toaster’ is because my current family’s PC motherboard is literally outdated, making it impossible to have DDR4 RAM and newer CPU. It’s also because I just want my own PC to avoid conflicts with other members of m’ family.
Forum users: blackjacksike, you were promoting federalism and now you speak of separatism?
I’m just hesitating on the price and worrying on the taxes (especially the provincial one).
EDIT: I also want to play some newer games later such as HL: Alyx and future Valve’s games.
