US$232.00raised of $800.00 goal goal
Hello, my name is Alex and I run a YouTube channel under the name Draconicrose. I do the usual let’s plays, but also tutorials, lists, and the occasional playful video. I’ve loved gaming since I was little and it’s my dream to turn it into a full-time job.
Sadly my life is currently not in a very good place. I can’t do the things I want because of my hardware. I work at a call center and can only do part-time due to my mental health issues, and while I have people who cover my living expenses, there isn't enough for "frivolous" things like computer parts. I want to get out and growing the channel would help me do that, which is why getting a new computer is so important to me. Unfortunately, at my level of income it would take over a year to be able to afford it on my own.
My current PC is over 10 years old. It does miracles for the hardware it has, but recording takes a toll on it and I obviously can’t do any modern games. That puts a serious dent on my ability to grow the channel and my gaming presence. Another thing I can’t do is streaming. It requires a much more powerful CPU than I have.
Your money will be going towards building a new computer from scratch, one beastly and powerful enough to last me a while by upgrading the individual components as it becomes necessary to do so.
If you’ve read so far, even if you haven’t donated, thank you! It means a lot to me to have your attention and care. If you can’t afford to donate, don’t stress about it, please. You can always help by sharing this page with your friends, family, and social media followers. Hopefully someone will read it as well and help out!

A tentative build plan!Update posted by Alex Draconicrose at 09:59 pm
I've looked up a few builds and decided to start with this. It should lower the goal to around $800 and still be upgradeable as necessary! Check it out and let me know what you think:https://es.pcpartpicker.com/user/Draconicrose/save...

Thank you, everyone! Together we've raised almost 300 dollars towards a new computer. Things are coming together, slowly but surely! To help with more donations coming in and to give you something else to share with your communities I made the following video. Crappy footage chosen quite on purpose!
