At Least Quad Core CPU (AMD3)

Try to find someone who can sell you a beefy PSU (850W+) and a decent GPU like a HD6950 (thats powerful mid range card I think).If you can afford it get a HD6990 or several HD5770 (or HD6770 if in UK as those are easier to find there).I don't have those parts so you'll have to find someone on here who has those parts.Good luck with your search :-)

So your son figured out how he could get you to give him a powerful gaming rig by pretending to be interested in bitcoin. Clever kid indeed Cheesy

im just trying to encourage his intellect.

Hes far more intelligent then most other kids his age, I am sure when he gets older he will be placed into advanced classes

our elementary school does not have an advanced class so he is basically the teachers assistant right now, he helps the other students with their tests and assignments

we are very proud of him - hes a gaming nut at the moment, usually he plays nintendo 3ds while playing a hacked version of pokemon tower defense on his pc at the same time

every console game he plays he sits down and plays it from start to finish, its remarkable.

Open him up a -50BTC account at your bank of Bitcoin for all that capital expenditure.

Now you can show him the joys of 10:1 leverage trading too!
