Default New build... help needed

Hey, Im graduating soon and as a graduation present I get a new computer. I was thinking of getting something already built from Falcon Northwest but wanted to get you guys' input. I havent been on the tech "scene" like I use to be, so tell me what would be best for me. Im going to be using it for gaming mostly with some Maya or another program usage. Ill say that the price range is about 3k for now till I get the actual figure. Thanks

You will get more for you money building one yourself, plus you will get the experience and learn along the way.
