    Holy crap that CPU is expensive.
    What are you planning to do with this computer once you get it built?

    The one you're looking at actually looks really nice, I'm not seeing anything immediately that surpasses it in terms of value or features available that's within your price range.

    Newegg does NOT accept PayPal. Unless you can get yourself a prepaid Debit card quickly, and transfer the funds from Paypal to the card (which I do all the time on my Netspend card) you have no other options.

    Here is a link to Newegg's payment policies:NewEgg Payment Policies

    That's a lovely link, but the info is wrong. I just did a test with a CD burner on my accout and didn't complete the checkout, but Paypal IS an option.

    That said, I feel kind of shady telling someone how to get a confirmed address on someone else's Paypal account.

    Hm, I just relized that Newegg also offers a BillMeLater option, (assuming you're 18) this might be perfect for you.

    You complete an application for an account, and it seems to work like a credit card in that approval is based on credit rating and they send you a Billing Statement later.

    i.e. You get your stuff now, and they bill you later.

    Hopefully that would give you enough time to get something worked out with your cousin so that you could use the funds from that paypal account to pay off the bill that you receive.
