www.alienware.com is generally regarded as the best site for prebuilt gaming computers. They are quite pricey, however, and I would HIGHLY suggest building your own.

Yes, I've built computers before, it's really not that hard. How much do you want to spend, and I'll be glad to pick out some good parts for you. You'll be using this computer for gaming, right?

Wait, are you getting two 6800gt. That seems a little excessive if you are.
