convince my parents to let me buy a new computer
 
Ok, so it may sound like i'm being a spoilt brat here but...
I currently have a computer with a 2.1gHz processor and 3gb RAM. I can play minecraft on minimum settings at about 7fps, on high settings im lucky if i can get 3fps. The thing is, when I tell my dad I have a sub-par computer he says that what i currently have is "one of the best computers you can get", which it clearly isnt... The computer i want to get is £611 and yes it's expensive but i will be paying for all of it, im only 15 and my dad is saying i am not aloud to go out and buy it because i have a briliant computer. I showed my dad my computer and he spent about 3 hours trying to fix it (deleting almost all my programs) as he says it's that ive clogged it up with junk which is why it is running slowly, i showed him minecraft and he was brushing off the fact that it still only ran at 7fps. What can i say to him to make him come round and let me buy this computer?
Yeh i do try to play other games aswell such as bf3 and team fortress but they're just to intense for my computer, minecraft was just an example i used to show my dad. i tried to get a job but my parents didn't allow me to get one because they were worried that it would effect my schooling.

Bro...my parents know that I play of games a lot. Like 5-9 hours a day. They also know that I rake in money through sponsors and tournaments. Therefore, they allowed my purchase of a Razor Blade after my Alienware M14x. Just show some maturity and try to make some money.


Also: your only playing minecraft. All you need is a laptop for 300.

You say that you'll be paying for all of it yourself. If you're going to spend your savings on it, that might be one of the reasons your Dad isn't in favor of it (perhaps he thinks of it as a college fund, or for some other more useful purpose in his mind). If you're not working, then consider earning some money (working part time if you can, or doing chores around the neighborhood, etc.). When he sees how committed you are to upgrading your PC, that may change his mind.
