Default Good online store?

Hey all, it's time for a new gaming rig but I just don't have the time to assemble everything myself between college and work. Are there any good stores you guys have used that allow you to customize a PC to your liking? I've been looking around at iBuyPower and CyberPowerPC, are either of those any good or am I going to get refurbished/crappy parts installed?

Any advice you could give would be much appreciated.

It's not the building it that's the problem. It really is the time >.< Full time job + being a full time student + homework and all that crap = like an hour a day to myself. If I built it on my free time it would take another month or so to get it finished and I really don't think my current computer has another month of life left in it.

Anyways, I've got a decent start on a computer from CyberPower. I'll post the build once I finalize it and see what you guys think.

I know how that goes I've been pulling double duty for a while myself. Ibuypower and Cyberpower are good. Avadirect Custom Gaming PC, Desktop Computers, Workstations, Notebooks, Servers & Components can be good, too. Sometimes the shipping is a bit much, though. But they offer superior customization options and support. Good prices, too. They're worth a look.

Yeah I would personally go with CyberPower if you're on such a time constraint and can't do it yourself.

Because I can't live without a computer lol. I need it for school work and when I don't have anything going on (I.E. weekends and holidays) I split my time between friends/GF and gaming.
