Default I have a new idea, build my computer.

www.digitalstormonline.com

alright that's the site, you have 2,000 dollars to spend and that has to include the g15 keyboard and a mouse, the g7 or something similar. I don't care if it's AMD or intel, just build it the best you think it can be built. also i can't use newegg/build my own.

Why can't you use Newegg and build your own?

I know I shouldn't say this, but those Dell XPS systems look sweet

They're expensive though

Dell XPS are overpriced. They do do a good job with wiring but thats about it.
