*edit 2* my debit card miraculously arrived in the mail moments ago, but i hit another brick wall… when i transfered my money from bank to paypal i forgot to leave a little in the bank to keep them from closing my account. the account is still there just kind of in a state of suspension. i’ve got 10$ which i added to my account a couple days ago when i realized i needed to keep it out of 0$ balance, and aparently that has been pending for a few days thanks to the holiday… the bank dude told me it would go though at midnight! so i’ll order my computer then and i guess it will be here on the 8th. lets hope there are no more road blocks!
*edit* so now i will probably have to wait yet another week, hopefully this won’t cost me even more money… even though you can pay newegg with a paypal account, you have to have a credit card or debit card on file to confirm your address.. which i think is pretty ridiculous. i am very disappointed… here’s the old entry though, in case you care to read it.
i am so nervous! its the 6th and although i said i’d have to wait until the 7th because a part is out of stock, i moved some things around because i wasn’t sure i could handle installing said part (an ssd) and now all parts are in order and are available and all i need is paypal to send me the lovely email that says your money is ready. i have no clue when they will do that.. it still says i am processing even though its the 6th and that was the estimated day of clearing >_< i just really want to get this over with!
can you believe i have had two really bad panic attacks over this?? buying computer parts is nothing new for me but i guess its just the gravity of the situation. i'm using every single dime i have on this thing. i can't mess up at all. i cannot afford to damage or screw up anything during installation.. on top of that well.. i'll be spending the most money i've ever spent in my life. yeah i know its not much for some people but it is for me.
earlier i removed my old computer from its spot in the computer desk. i guess i could spend some time today removing various parts from it for use in the new machine. i'm cannibalizing what i can from this thing, the rest i'm going to try and sell to a local computer repair guy who was friends with my dad.
i'm keeping the cd drive, because i like having 2, i'm keeping the card reader thing.. keeping my hard drives, and i think that's it! the fan on the video card is dead but i'm pretty sure someone with knowledge on how to fix that could make it work again. my dad's fixed old videocards of mine before so that's not too hard. the power supply is only a year old (so's the videocard for that matter) the ram is a couple years old but could be useful for someone with an older machine..same with the mother board and processor... so i hope i can get a bit of cash back on this thing.
for those curious in what i am going to get, here's a rundown:
small hard drive for windows install and programs needing fast access
bigger hard drive for storage
windows 7 64 bit
now if paypal would just hurry up…
