Question need tested mobo/cpu/ram bundle! help me!

am getting ready to build my very first gaming pc. out of all the research ive done, seems like most folk have the most problems with outdated bios/ bios setttings incorrect for ram, etc etc. i was planning on buying a "tested" and "updated " mobo/cpu/ram bundle from sysbuilder.com, but can only find bad reviews of them and thier service. does anyone know of any company's that sell these tested combo's that are reputable and have GREAT customer satisfaction?! thanks so much in advance

Umm...budget? Use? Maybe giving us a little more info could help. We could recommend a combo that would work.

What is the quality of the RAM? Is it a standard P5B and some crappy ram?

becuase I just put together that exact same build.

A standard P5B, E6400, 2 GB of DDR2800 G.Skill ram that kicks *** for 520 before shipping.
