i'm with shannon, get an alienware. i wouldnt go for an HP. Their pretty good for a year or so then they just turn to crap. the hardware they put in their sucks. Dells overpriced (well they all are) and the stuff they say is "FREE" is really discounted. I havent heard anything about ABS but out of those four companies, either dell or alienware would be my choice. I've hear good and bad things about dell. Dell support is awsome though (in my opinion)

*G.Skill 1GB DDR 400
*Kingwin Mutant X Series
*HP IDE Lightscribe DVD Burner
*Seagate Barracuda 80GB SATA II
*Maxtor 80GB IDE
*OCZ Gamexstream 600W PSU

your probably going to get a crappy psu with your computer. And you might not be able to OC as they will most likely lock your bios.

get an alienware since money isnt an issue. even though they are overpriced their computers are made with good quality. but if money truly isnt an issue. buy one from they have the best support. and their paint jobs on theirs cases are so nice. hope that helps =D
