Are THESE what you found?

You should try to be a little bit more specific....
is there a specific GAME you are wanting to play?
How concerned are you with the graphic detail level while playing the game?
Are you going to want to multi-task with it also, or just strictly gaming rig?
What is your budget for said computer?

If you want a good gaming PC, i would look into the Dell XPS computers.

I disagree about Dell. their PC's are almost always Pentium 4-based, which are not that great for gaming.
the best option IMO is a completely customised rig, which will be higher in performance and lower in price than any Dell or other retail PC

HP makes good, reliable PC's.

Dell makes cheap, semi-reliable PC's, but are hard to upgrade.

Newegg provides parts for creating an awesome PC.
