Cool Need help deciding on a gameing pc HELP!

Hello everyone! I want a gameing pc and am willing to pay anywhere from 800 - 1000 bucks for it (Not including monitor) Basicly i need a pc keyboard and mouse and it has to be good for gameing, id like 16gb but can settle for 8gb an intel i7 processor and overclocking is optional also id like a good/great video card. Before you say Build one its cheaper, no i dont want to build one, i know how to i just chose to buy one in case i mess up, i could also install more ram on my own if its cheaper to do so. Do please help me! Suggest a pc for me and post a link and a price, thanks again guys

Building it yourself is much cheaper and more efficient, but you call the ball. Here are a few:

Newegg.com - CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1334 Desktop PC Intel Core i7 3770k(3.50GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 7750 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
$949


Not an i7 but just as good -Newegg.com - CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra 2098 (GU2098) Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-4100(3.6GHz) 8GB DDR3 500GB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
$599 (lower than 800, but how's that a bad thing? :P)


Gateway FX6860-UR20P Desktop PC - Intel Core i7-2600 3.4GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1.5TB HDD, ATI Radeon HD 6750, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit at TigerDirect.com
$899


Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 3109-1NU Desktop PC - 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3770 3.40GHz, 8GB DDR3, 2TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 1GB, DVDRW, Keyboard/Mouse, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit at TigerDirect.com
$949

I dont know much about alienware, but i do know they overprice their computers becuase of the brand name and the "LED" lighting. its simple to do and would cost much less of you put your own LED;s in

Z77 board, 8GB RAM, 2500k, and 560ti. Can't go wrong there.

I would suggest that you purchase components from Newegg, they have some great deals. Also do you know if you want AMD or Intel?

Newegg.com (Link)
That is by far the best site to buy everything for your computer needs. Also, before you buy, make sure that you post a thread asking if the system is right for your needs. Include links to all of the parts that you plan to buy, someone (more than likely S0ULPhire) will approve it or tweak it.
