Default Just Wondering

Im only 13 and i dont know much about gaming computers, but im learning more and more everyday. I dont really know if i will have the time to customize my computer when i get my job at 14, so i was wondering. Are these good computers? http://www.digitalstormonline.com/gaming.asp?from=652
I was thinking about the TwisterUltra powered by AMD.

Ok i couldnt be bothered to read ur last post sorry it just seemed too long lol. But DO NOT buy ready made computers, the computers on the link are good but you could make that yourself and probably save urself a lot of money. Pick out the different hardware components you want and build it yourself. Post back with what you come up with.

It really doesnt take long to build and its not hard either. Its an experience that you should have and it also helps you to learn lots. Fair enough if you cant.
