ibuypower is pretty good, so is cyberpowerpc...

however, you can build a much faster computer for the same or slightly less money.

Yes, ibuypower is a good site like sean said, but building you own rig is even better for reasons above.

Actually, cybrpc is under a $100 more than you build, ansd its garrenteed to run. So if you don't want the hassle, its a good idea.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Seriously, just build it yourself. It's really simple. If you haven't done it before just watch some Youtube videos or something, it's a matter of plugging connectors together and screwing parts in place, it's not rocket science. Building yourself not only saves money (which is important) but also allows you to fine tune the PC exactly to your needs and budget. Unlike "build your own" sites where you get to choose between maybe 3-5 options for each part, building yourself you get literally hundreds of options for each part. Then even the looks and case design are up to you, add lights, add LED fans, add whatever you want. It's the most personal a personal computer can get.
