Hello, my name is James Creamer, and I am collecting to help me build a computer that I can use for my school work, as well as my career work when I graduate. This computer will also be used for my personal things as well, but mainly for school and work.
Goal & Description
I am only asking for the money because I cannot plausibly afford this computer, or one of equal power, in the foreseeable future. I am going into the career field of Graphic Design, and hope to study Animation also. My dreams and goals are to be a game designer, be it the graphics or the mechanics of the characters. My goal is to get this computer before the end of the year, so that I can begin working on my life goals early in my life. I have built this computer to have the processing power and memory I will need for my work. My top finacial goal is $5250, which will cover all the parts and software I will need for my future career and schoolwork. My bottom finacial goal is $1745 so that I can buy a very simple iMac, which my professor said was the best (meaning cheapest) option for a student in my fields of study.
