Default new computer suggestions.

hi, im buying a new computer and want to know what i should get. The computer will be used mostly for gaming. Im not getting anythign super duper..im looking for something mid ranged-maybe a bit above for a good price.

So if u have the time please help me out :P
Go to these sites and go through these quotes.. Do any or all of them if u want or just give me some good tips/great deals and combos for buyign a new comp.
My budget is around 1500$ max (those are canadian sites so prices may seem wierd)

BTW I DONT need a monitor/keyboar/mouse/speakers/large hardrive(60-80gb is fine)/software/os

http://pccyber.ca/scrOnlineQuote.asp
http://www.sprintcomputer.com/systems/index.php

Which site gives the best deals/what should i get

Also is it better to buy a whole comp from one of these places or buy the parts seperately ( i know a guy who can build it for me)

Also would it be benfitial to get one of those motherboar/cpu/memory combos on pricewatch.com (they have some good deals dont they?), which one?. Remember budget for entire comp is 1500$ CAN

Thx for any info and help

This is a barebones system, it doesnt come with an OS on it. You still get to load your own os, learn a little about computers. And won't have to pay for someone else to build your computer (no build charge on barebones builds). The quote is from www.advanceddesignky.com . I'm most likely the guy that would build your system. We don't have all parts on all the configurators, we've been to busy to update the website. The quote is from one of the video editing systems.
