Maybe something like the DeltaGT (under MidRange) and ill upgrade the hard drive to the 640GB for you and give you a better cpu. But yeah, only if you feel you cant do it yourself because like anyone else i have to make a profit no matter how small it may be.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz or Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4ghz
CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
DIAMOND Radeon HD 4850
Western Digital Caviar SE16 640GB
SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner
That Build will beat anything Dell or Gateway can make for about that price. While his charging a fairly decent amount for a great build. It will last you quite a while if you decide to go with the Q6600. Your games will run beautifully and it will be able to handle multi tasking no problem (thats with the CPU at stock).
By the way when I say multitasking I mean like 60 programs or more in task manager. Yet it will still be able to handle them and have little to no hic ups.
