couldn't have said it any better. working for your parts is what you need to do, life isn't free...and nothing will be handed over to you either, so you need to find some way to work for your parents. do chores around the house, help your neighbors for a couple bulks, there's ways to get the money to buy ur mobo.best way to do this is work for your parts. don't ask for handouts, start by learning how to clean up OS or install OS and charge your customers for it. obtain the talents required to EARN your parts. that's the problem with kids nowadays, they want handouts. do something to earn a board and maybe it will come to you.
