    if you want my advice, build your own unless you either, don't know how to put one together, or don't care to.

    What's your budget? and I agree with the above poster.. It is pretty easy to put a computer together yourself these days. Especially with all the youtube how to videos floating around.

    Do not buy a PC from Best Buy or Dell. Best Buy is garbage, and Dell is the biggest ripoff on the planet.

    Post your budget and I will configure a PC for you on AVADirect.

    /sigh.. when are people going to realize that NOT EVERYONE can/wants to build/maintain/warranty their own PC ?
    believe me I'm not advocating BestBy etc.. however they have their place. Some people just want a PC that "works", games when they want to game etc and IF something should go wrong dial up 1-88-IT'S-BROKE !! Get a technician on the phone who can "dial" in to their PC and "fix it", or worst case schedule a pickup and in the meantime while their PC is getting fixed get a loaner.

    I've been building PCs for over 20 years, worked for big biz as well as myself and many others.. many people just want a computer thats guaranteed to work and if it doesn't, have a guarantee that someone will come fix it. For them it's worth paying the "Dell Tax/Surcharge" and knowing that they can get help 24/7. I hardly like buildign PCs for family nevermind clients who want to call at 2am because they can figure out how to migrate from OE6 to Thunderbird or why their PC won't "wake up" or what this or that error means. SURE, I can build a top of the line PC that matches or beats any thing Dell/HP/BB etc can put out at a significant savings however I DON'T want to be on beckon command 24/7 52 weeks a year for a measley $450 profit. If YOU (generalized, not aimed at anyone person here) don't want/need that type of support and feel comfortable mucking aournds in a PC even if it means downtime/broken hardware etc thats great but again not everyone does and THOSE are the people BB/Dell tc are catering to

    Better plan on $700-850. The $700 range is pretty minimal for a gaming system.

    Look around NewEgg and Amazon, do not go lower than an AMD 5770 or Nvidia GTX 460.

    $700 wont give ultra unless you build it yourself.

    $700 is really cutting it close. Here is the best prebuilt PC I can think of for that type of budget.
