    exactly. thats one of the reasons why my work stopped pushing home made systems and started suggesting full premade packages because in a couple of years time when something dies it can be a huge hassle tryin to find out who we got that part from and if its in warranty or not. we still do home mades if people need it but we wont suggest them, the main systems now are 3 years warranty on everything, much easier.

    Not necessarily.
    My hope in this thread is to encourage the boy to only buy the TNT2 because that's all i have talked about. You guys are getting ahead of yourselves in giving him true business direction.

    Let him buy the TNT2. Itll give him reason to appreciate the GFFX5900Ultra/R9800Pro* when he can afford it.




    * its an analogy, not an invite to argue vid cards

    You've cross-referenced it differently to what I was thinking... but your point is just as valid.

    I was talking in regards to my wishing him the best. It's the wish that you didn't really want to do, but the person is so set on the idea that you can't really stop them, so you let them go knowing that they are going to see their mistake later on. In other words, buying that TNT2 and then realising that there's much better out there, if only they had of waited and saved up...

    We are giving you better advies by not giving you advise. I really think you should try it, but you need to try it the hard way, in little steps. Going out and talking to people, getting business cards, and doing the real work will forge your abilities and sharpen your talents for use for the rest of your life. Im not just giving you advise by not giving you advise, for computer businesses, but for any endeavor you choose to take on.

    Final Advise not given:
    YOUR TOO YOUNG. If you can overcome that, you can overcome the biggest speed bump of your life, the one called, "You can't"

    give him a break JediAgent, don't you think that last line was a bit harsh?

    The best way to learn is to screw up and learn from mistakes... and if he really f*cks up, he'll learn quite a bit ;)

    he should try it, and wheter it is a success or not he will learn quite a bit , and that will only help him when he gets older.

    :cheers:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I was going to say something, but I couldn't phrase it in a nice way, so I'm not going to. But I still agree with Jedi.

    Maybe I should revert to my old 'Not so nice admin' title..

    How do you suggest i give him a break? Tell him what he wants to hear? Give him advise without subject to his age? Tell him to do what I and friends have done in similiar endeavors?

    None of those would be the best advise for him. When posting my two cents, i've decided that the best advise would be no advise at all. I hope you guys don't consider me and beefcake total d*cks. But there is a certain maturity and experience that one needs to consider when giving someone else advise. Amd_man's situation is very similiar to mine at the same age, im only telling him things that i think would have made me a better man.

    I'm only going to say one thing about this.

    Setting up your own business is hard work, if your not interested in hard work, then go work for somebody else
