Getting a Gaming PC

I am a YouTuber. My channel is JTdaBeast and I mostly do gaming videos.

I am not really able to play high specs games because of the equipment I have. I used to play on PS4 but its broken I think beyond repair. Then I did some videos on mobile games but those are kind of simple games and I have to do a lot of unnecessary editing to make a decent video. Now I do some computer games with this emulator type site so I can play my Steam games on my school Chromebook for $4.99 a month. My friends and other people are always teasing me about playing games on my phone and school Chromebook with the equipment I have.

It would really benefit me and my viewers if I was able to have better content for them. The video editing, audio editing, and screen recorders on Chromebook are not that good at all. Also, it would benefit my friends a little as well because when I'm gaming with them the lack of power that the device I'm playing on has held me back and they get frustrated having to wait for me.

The funds will be used to build a gaming PC that can run complex games on high settings and has good video editing software. Of course, my equipment is also, to say the least, subpar. So I will also be getting some equipment like a microphone, gaming keyboard and mouse, and a webcam as well.

While I'm not particularly rushing anyone, it would best to have this stuff ASAP. This is because I am currently in high school and I would like to have a decently good YouTube channel following by the time I'm heading into college. I would like to have at least 1,000 subscribers on YouTube before I leave high school, so it would definitely be best to get this stuff as fast as I can.

The support would honestly mean a lot to me. I know that it is rough saving up for things because I have done this type of thing before to buy my PS4. I won't be lazy and rely on just gofundme. I'm planning to work hard as well. I will do a lot of saving and budgeting to avoid non-essential expenses and I will transfer the money into a safe bank account. I will also try to get part-time and summer jobs, as well as do chores and other things of that nature.

If I can get help from you guys I would be so grateful. Every bit of help counts toward my goal. If I can reach my goal, I won't have to save up as heavily as I have been for the PC. Once I'm not being super frugal, I will do what I can to give back to the gofundme community.

Thank you for listening to my story! I hope you can spare some money for me.
