thanks for the help guys, I think I am going to check out an HP. Our home PC is an HP and it seems to be doing very well, so I will look into them, as well as gateway and IBM. Thank-you once again.

Well, I just looked at HP, and I can get basically the same internals as the Alienware for about $500 cheaper... So would you recommend an AMD Turion over an Intel Core Duo?

Get the Core Duo!! It's so much faster than the Turion...
