I hate to drop the evil word "dell" in here but I'd rather get a dell then emachines. I've had to reformat my friend's computer (emachine owner) due to spyware and when I opened to look at the motherboard, both computers looked tiny and my cards I was going to put in there wouldn't fit in the agp slot!

I recommend either buying a dell, falcon northwest or alienware if you want to stay away from building your own. heh, notice I put those companies from cheapest to most expensive

alienware is an uuber rip off... go to www.cyberpowersystem.com build ur own there, fairly cheap too

cheap sli systems for less than 800 bucks, well 2 6600 gt's... but still not bad at all

can't beat that, you win I forgot that majority of people want a gaming machine while I'm used to building simple machines for parents or cousins who just say "I want this computer to use WORD for papers, a dvd rom for a movie or 2 and the ability to play solitare." haha! thank you barebone kits and cheap dell / gateway.
