Text message from my son:

Hey Dad, I was thinking about modding and Skyrim and my computer, and how its slow and doesn't have all the best stuff and there's a lot of folders and games and more junk. So I was thinking of building my own computer. If we could get together and build the best PC it would be like father-son bonding time and I have some cash to throw in there for some parts that we would need in order to build this. Plus, since we don't have a Lotus to work on together, we can work on this instead. I want to know what you think about this and let me know because I think it would be fun to do.

A cursory glance reveals an 8-way 5.0GHz AMD chip is within budget...

He just hit all the right buttons didn't he? Smart kid looks like he is going to get one heck of a gaming computer.

He really did. Effective manipulation indeed! I'm going to match him dollar-for-dollar so he can decide where he wants to put his money, and I'll have him turn every screw and hit every keystroke so he will have built it entirely by his own hands.

That is just totally awesome on so many levels! Wants to spend time with his dad. Wants the experience of building something himself. Willing to chip into the cost.

You have yourself a neat kid there dude!
