Hi. I am currently in year 11, 2 years away from Uni.
Yesterday, I built my first PC with help from my uncles and thanks to my mum who brought me all the stuff.
Here are the specs:
Ryzen 3 2200g. MSI B450M PRO-VDH V2, WD 240GB M.2 SSD, 8GB DDR4 3000MHZ RAM and 500W EVGA PSU.
Also an amazing case with nice cable management.
I also have a really nice monitor, 19" 1080p, 60Hz 5ms. And a really nice keyboard and mouse.

This totalled to around £400

For the last day that I have used it, it is incredibly fast and smooth and a great system.
My dad is a douche and couldn't stand me having something nice. So he is forcing me not to use it and therefore making me move it or sell it.
He's extremely stubborn and so I have no choice.
I have two options, sell it (and make around £20 profit) or keep it safe in the attic for maximum 2 years until university.

If I store it how would I have to store it?
Will it still run like new (would I notice the difference)?
Will the internal components inside be okay? (Especially the battery on the motherboard and my PSU)
How should I store the monitor?
Will this be fine after storage?

Or should I sell them.

However, i kinda don't want to sell it because my mum has been saving this up for me for 6 months and I will feel sad if i do.
But she wants me to sell it depending on how well it will work after I take out of storage after 2 years.

So should I sell it or store it?
Thanks a lot!

I'd store it, and it will store just fine, if transported and handled carefully.

If your dad is that bad, you have no guarantee that he won't pinch the cash from you, under some theory of executive privilege.

Actually, not really.....then again, I might just be lazy. I hate re-building a perfectly good system for no real reason. Though, you need to do what feel is best in your situation.
