Default Gaming Computer?

Hi, i'm looking into buying a desktop computer in a couple months, and i figure i'll have around $1500-1700 to spend. What companies have computers good for gaming (not hardcore, just like Medal of Honor, and halo and stuff) and i also want to figure in a flat panel monitor. (prolly 17 inch)

I would recomend waiting a bit, learning a bit more about pc's and than build your own. Your pc could be soo much better if you build it, and it is fun to do, and gives you the semse of accomplishment.

Building it will save you a bundle and will increase you knowledge of comps. And you pick what you want.
