If i have to point in a direction, it'd be NEWEGG.
Newegg is simply the best online computer shop, period.

My friend got a computer from ibuypower a couple years ago; it's still working, even though he's had to send a few parts back. But then again, those parts breaking were his fault(he tried his hand at OCing and failed); they still gave him replacements for free, so I suppose that's either a plus or some sort of loophole in their replacement system.

In any case, they're quality computers at a price that can't be beat if you don't want to build your own computer.

ibuypower > cyberpower from what i've heard

non of which are great though

my friend has an ibuypower, but it crapped out on him the first day (indicating that they don't test their computers?), but he got the problem fixed though (ibuypower is 'bout 20 minutes away from here)
