Dad wont buy me a (gaming) PC


Recommended Posts

Here is the Problem:

I want a computer, but use it mainly for gaming.

 

But: My Father is strictly against that.

My mom is ok with that, as long as i dont overuse it.

 

Not only he is against gaming, but i need a reason why i would buy a computer.

 

Tbh, he told me that if i would NEED one he would give me a high end pc anyway.

Also, since he works in IT stuff on his own and is not naive like normal parents are, things like "i need it for school and stuff" wont work.

There is also allready a computer, which is old, but fully functional.

 

The fact that i would pay it all myself after i am done saving scares him even more, because, what am i hiding if i would try to get it as independently as possible.

 

I allready have much Conputer-s

skill-basic stuff learned, so i dont have any reason anymore. And building a pc gives u alot of understanding abt the computer is a good one, but fairly weak since i wont build one everyday.

 

I cant just say i am trying to render some 3d high end fancy shit because well that is kinda boring for me, and hell notice right away im not serious.

 

So, any argument ideas to convince my dad? Note that thats no normal parenting, but asian advanced parenting + he has way more knowledge about computers than ill ever have.

 

Thanks :)

 

Ps: in the answers ill try to counter the arguments as good as i think dad would

 

Pps: Also, it may sounds a bit weird since my image wouldnt have suggested something like that, but u know what happens.

There are certainly low-cost computers suited for gaming. I had one with pretty mid-range to high-end specs. The thing is, it was 4 years old (Samsung RC730)

I now have a new laptop, with a not that great processor as well as gpu (i5-4210u/geforce 820m). Not that great, but can play games fluently at low resolutions with medium to high graphics quality. It also has 8 Gigs of RAM. But don't tell that to your dad. Now the point is: This computer, entschuldigung, laptop, has low-end hardware, so "not suited for gaming and stuff". But you can pretty much do anything with it, even play... quite demanding games on it. On low graphics with low resolutions, but I hate light bloom anyway. Your dad knows that an i5 is not a top-of-the-end processor. In fact, it's dual core, but hyperthreaded (4 logical cores instead of 2, in this case). The Geforce card ain't that great too, but will pretty much lets you run most games at 60 fps.

Well, buying a "workstation" laptop for 600-700 bucks is the easiest option I believe.

 

Please understand it its not for how much and how but if i may get one

You always say the truth with every detail to him ? 

well, no, but its too suspicious to suddenly have a super dope gf which i have only told of because of a computer

 

got an idea

i got a laptop, but its basicly a potato. Dad doesnt think its a potato, since he worked with it for many, many years, successfully.

actually its a laptop with pride, if you buy a porsche right now it contains elements that have been forged on this laptop

 

but its a potato at modern standards- ill let it look like one. But its uncertain that thats enough

If this don't work nothing willl do it lol

 

But you can build a good one with a Quad core processor 1.2 or 1.3 Ghz  with 4gb of ram and 2GB of Vide card with those stuff you can play 90% of the new 3D game include ps3 and xbox 360 games (How do i know it?) thats my pc and i play Naruto shippuden Storm 4 everyday wich need  so much requirements. Build a pc like that it's cheap (well it was for me) and i wasn't even working.... PS (don't forget the 36 inch monitor) for a better experience :D
