As the title says, I need ways to save up money for my new PC! Which you can check out here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Lc4Nw6
Thanks in advance.
Just don't spend money 4head.
Also you should change out the cpu for a ryzen 7 2700 and a b450 mobo.
lol thanks man
Also don't use a that passive heatsink.
They have trouble cooling down a quad core cpu let alone a 8 core 16 core beast.
Get a gammaxx 400. It's slightly better than a hyper 212 and cheap and handle a mild overclocks on modern cpus .
and maybe get a hard drive to complement that ssd. 120gb will fill up really quick.
.......and try to get at least 2666 mhz ram as ryzen's performance does benefit alot from faster ram.
Jeez this list is uhhh, not so good.
It's not the most coherent. I'd recommend some changes like these if they want 240 Hz:

About $150 more, but a lot more bang for the buck.
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate the critiques since this is my first time.
I save up about $1000 each year for a new toy. Camera, drone, gun, computer, whatever.
One way I do that is to skip some purchases and instead put that money in the toy fund. $10 for new socks? Nah, I'll put more holes in the old ones and put that $10 aside. Stopping for a burger on the way home? Nah, I've got some stuff in the fridge. There's a few more dollars for the main purchase. Depending on your spending habits, it's easy to put away $20 to $40 a week, and it's all through small, targeted, relatively painless sacrifices.
In my case, I have about $1000 I could spend on a new build today, but I've pretty much decided to wait for the Ryzen 3000 series to come out. When the Fourth of July sales hit, I'll have $1400 to $1800 to spend, depending on how aggressively I scrimp, and that opens up a lot more options.
do you mean getting a cheaper parts list or putting money aside?
